Hello everyone and nice to e-meet you!
I was referred to you knowledgeable lot by a member of a thryoid forum I'm part of.
I'm a 29 year old with an underactive thyroid and for the past almost-three years I have been suffering with recurring extreme tiredness, feelings of hot and cold, nausea, skin crawling, weak muscles (especially legs), high irritability and a slumping libido. I feel that this all the result of either my existing condition or a closely related one, but my doctors have not been very helpful and now that one of them has referred me to a Chronic Fatigue clinic, even less so. Meanwhile my health seems to be getting worse.
Anyway, I got a thyroid function test done privately, and one of the members of the thyroid forum thought my B12 levels suggested Pernicious Anaemia. I was just wondering if any of you guys agreed and, if so, could suggest what I should do next?
These are my results:
VITAMIN B12: 186 pmol/L 140.00 - 724.00
FOLATE (SERUM): 9.44 ug/L 3.89 - 26.80
FERRITIN: 201.3 ug/L 30.00 - 400.00

THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE: 1.7 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE: 17.57 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4): 76.1 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3: 4.22 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY: <10 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES: 7.65 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
