I'm wondering perhaps I have a thyroid problem. I have gone for blood test (negative). I am aware not everything on the intranet is proof positive, however there is  this test by the name of thyroid imaging this could explain a lot of what is going on with me. How does anybody feel about this

Maybe tell us first which thyroid imaging method you are considering using, so we can direct our concerns/comments to that particular method.

The most common method is:

Nuclear Scan / Radioactive Iodine Uptake (RAI-U)

These methods are also used to image the thyroid:
CT Scan
MRI / Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Thyroid Ultrasound

Quoted from C_Sharp

The most common method is:

Nuclear Scan / Radioactive Iodine Uptake (RAI-U)



This method involves giving the patient a pill containing radioactive iodine.

The body is going to move the radioactive iodine to the thyroid and it will essentially "glow" there by emitting radiation. One then use a series of x-rays to image the gland.

The patient has to decide if the information gained is worth the radiation exposure.

Sometimes your GP will order only the TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone).  The 'normal' results can be within a wide range, but you could still have symptoms.

Go back to your doc and ask for the full panel.  This will include tests for T3 and T4.

There is a lot of information about the thyroid on thyroid.about.com.  Read them before going back to your doc so that you know exactly what symptoms to be on the lookout for, as well as what questions to ask him/her.

I agree with Nadira.  There's a wide range of "normal" but most people feel best when their TSH is between 1 and 2.  Mary Shomon's page on About.com will provide you with all kinds of information.

[face=Verdana][/face][color=purple][/color] I did not have many answers all good. I have an appointment for an image test. There are two either would do, the amount of radiation in one of them is not harmful. We need to consider this how many have had CT scans, M.R.I. and so fourth thanks for your input
