I just learned that my TSH is high and I have made an appointment to see my PCP. Is it always chronic after onset? My cardiologist, who ordered the blood work, is sending me a copy of the lab results, so I don't know how high it is. I do not have a family history of thyroid problems. The high TSH explains alot of my weird symptoms, but I'm not exactly thrilled to learn of yet another condition to be treated. I'm just curious to understand why my thyroid has suddenly decided to go wonky (actually it is the pituitary gland that produces the hormones for the thyroid, right?). Any info my DC family can give me will be greatly appreciated. I want to go to my PCP on Tuesday armed with knowledge, and you are all some of the smartest folks I know. Thanks in advance!
Hugs to all!
