Goiter and thyroid question?
I’m a 22 year old female and have a goiter. My doctor first mentioned it to me when I was about 16 and again last year.
I’ve had my TSH tested regularly as well as Free T3 and Free T4, all are normal. I have symptoms that could be suggestive of a thyroid problem but are being treated as a connective tissue disease (Lupus/Sjogren’s overlap). I’m on Plaquenil and have improve dramatically. My GP felt my goiter and said she can’t feel any nodules.
My grandma has a thyroid condition (don’t know which one but she take levothyroxine. I have a number of autoimmune diseases in my family and I also have Celiac Disease.
Is it possible to have a thyroid condition and have normal blood tests? Should I have it tested regularly?
