I posted over in General Health but thought it might be an idea to post here too.
So, I had a full set of blood tests done a couple of weeks ago. They were done due to me having an unusual symptom of a burning throat/mouth which didn't respond to acid reducing medications. I've also been generally pretty run down over the last few months with recurring eye infections and vertigo/dizziness along with the above.
Anyway, blood results showed that my TSH was borderline high at 4.8. Unfortunately I don't have the range for it. All other results were normal.
Having done my own googling research, I discovered that hypothyroidism can have many symptoms though this particular one (burning mouth/throat) didn't come up specifically.
I'm due to get the bloods repeated in four weeks time, but I was wondering what will happen if they remain the same?
I feel generally okay in myself, fed up with the mouth/throat thing but no typical hypothyroid symptoms such as lethargy, weight gain etc...
I'd be interested to hear if anyone has experience of burning throat/mouth, especially if thyroid related.
I've been back to the GP today and have now been given anti fungal drops to try, so we'll see.

TSH 4.8, borderline raised - what to expect from follow up bloods?
