Pediatrics/Can you help?


I'm not sure if you could be any help on the subject but its worth a try.  My 5 yr old son just had blood work done and I got the results today. I had the tests done because he has been suffering from headaches,fever, leg pain, nasua, loss of appetite and fatigue for 6 months. Yes I said months. It happens about every two weeks lasting one to three days. His doctor finally agreed to take blood. The only thing that was abnormal was his thyroid. The nurse who called was on her cell and I could tell she was driving and in a hurry so she rushed through explaining his results. All she said was that they were abnormal not high or low. She said she would set him up to see an endocrinologist. Unfortunately there are no experts in that field on this site. Anyway, could the abnormal thyroid be causing his symptoms? Any information at all about his symptoms and thyroid abnormality is greatly appreciated. I understand this my not be your field and I am sorry if I wasted your time. Thank you.

Thyroid hormone reports need to be interpreted with caution considering the various components age group and clinical pattern of sleep diet intellect and personality
