OK, I thought I had Lyme (still not sure if I do) but I had some bloodwork, and my thyroid tests came back super high!
Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies were 349
Thyroglobulin Antibodies were 376.
TSH was normal (1.81)
I also had slightly lower than normal white blood cells and platelets.
I have had achy joints and muscle weakness for a few months now, and I have lost 12 pounds since having my son (after I already returned to my normal weight).
I am definitely irritable and have a LOT of anxiety, although I always have had that.
No issues with my thyroid itself, haven't noticed any swelling or pain or anything weird with my face.
Could this be postpartum thyroiditis or something else? Going to the doc tomorrow...
ETA: Around the same time my daughter was nearing her first birthday I ALSO thought I had Lyme, and had the same achy joints and weight loss...
