Thank you all for the reply!
I do not know my TSH yet, I am waiting on that result to come back. I just saw him again yesterday after I posted this and he told me this: You are Hashimoto's. But, because of the hoarseness and fullness in your throat, and the fact that your sister has a goiter and mother has nodules, we will order a CT scan of the soft tissue of your throat. He did say that those symptoms could be inflammation, but will scan to be positive. He didn't seem to concerned with my T3 levels, said that is was indeed high but not high enough to be concerned. Also, I had taken my thyroid meds that morning and a couple hours later had my blood test which he said could cause a bump in the levels.
The hair shedding is much better but the energy levels are still not quite there even with the T3 high.. I don't think I mentioned that I do take hormone shots (estradiol w/ Testosterone) monthly. Just wondering if all this is related. It all started after I had my ovaries out.
Ohhhh the joys of being a 45 year old woman :) :)
