I had some blood tests on Tuesday because my pulse was high (was between 130-150). They came back today and I was told they showed an overactive thyroid. The only part I can remember is something about T4(?) and something that was supposed to be under 19 was 23.
I am 30 weeks pregnant.
Is this a major problem? I have been told that I need to have it restested in two weeks to see if it goes up as sometimes pregnancy can cause a rise. If it goes up then they say they will have to treat it.
does any one have any experience of this in pregnancy? I have also had preeclampsia in all three of my previous pregnancies - and have been previously diagnosed with an anxiety disorder - could these things be related?
