    I had an injury from pfizer covid vax and now I am dealing with hyperthyroidism along with several other issues.

    TSH: .0001
    T4: 4.2
    T3: 13.6
    bun/creatine: 35

    I have almost every symptom and was dx with dysautonomia until recently when they tested my thyroid and said it is very high. The only thing I really don't seem to have is a goiter. Ultrasound in one week. I don't have an appt for another week and I am so sick. Not able to keep anything down and weight is still going down. Been dealing with this for four months.

    When I do see the dr what should I ask or be aware of? I want to feel better so bad.

    Thank you for any assistance.

    Sorry to be so slow. We had a winter storm in early May that knocked power out and destroyed my router. Just finally got WIFI back up.
    If that was an FT4 it's elevated but if it's a T4 it would be on the low side. You would want to see an endocrinologist if you truly are hyperthyroid, which is suggested by your low TSH.
    Hyperthyroidism caused by the vaccine usually resolves within a few months as the TSI antibodies fall. Please let me know your levels along with the reference ranges used by the lab. The ultrasound tells if your hyperthyroidism is caused by an autoimmune problem or if it's from nodules. A TSI blood test is used to confirm Graves' disease.
    best, elaine
