I am a 35 year old female. I have hypothyroidism and I am on Synthyroid. Overall, I am healthy. I exercise daily and do not smoke. I have a 15 month old toddler. Throughout my pregnancy, my blood work showed an elevated WBC, but they are under 15 k/mL. They just assumed it was due to being pregnant. At six months postpartum, I noticed a lump on my neck. Further examination and ultrasound showed it was a thyroid nodule. FNA confirmed it was a follicular goiter, which is assumed to be benign. Follow up CBC blood work showed the following: WBC 15.9 k/uL, basophils 10%, IG 9.8%, absolute neutrophil count 8.8 k/uL, absolute basophils 1.6 k/uL, IG ABS 1.65 k/uL. All other counts were within the normal range.
I would like to add that I have had a persistent rather annoying headache for almost three months and have developed a weird itching. I itch like crazy and then when I scratch it, it leaves a red chaffed mark that is more than normal. I also feel rather fatigued, but have just assumed it was due to being a new mom. The only other thing I experience is a recurrent tibial stress fracture, which was around four times in 3.5 years. I cannot run more than 5 miles per week in good shoes on a soft surface without inflaming it. This is noteworthy because I have been a runner all of my life and it is a newer thing to me. I am going to meet my hematologist soon and I would like to know what to expect from my appointment. Should I be prepared for additional tests at my appointment? Thanks in advance.
