First time posting here.
Been feeling rubbish for the last couple of years, I’m 51 & have many low thyroid symptoms, worst being crushing fatigue, feeling cold all the time, raynauds in toes, hands (this is a big one for me, as until recently have always been able to walk around with bare feet, tshirt etc even in winter, now shivering constantly even though dressed appropriately)
Have low basal temp, internal shivering, high cholesterol & many more!
Last July my GP agreed to test TSH 0.83 so my worries were dismissed.
However, I’m now feeling worse, my basal temp is lower.
A couple of weeks ago I had a test done through Blue Horizon, all normal, but wondered if any of you think it’s worth going back to my GP with these?
Total T4 111 (59-154)
TSH 1.33 (0.27-4.2)
FT4 14.3 (12.0-22.0)
FT3 4.2 (3.1-6.8)
Thyroglobulin anti 11.3 (0-115)
Thyroid Peroxidase anti 8.0 (0-34)
I should be grateful that these are normal results, but I guess that I’m looking for a reason to explain how awful I feel & am fed-up with appearing as a ‘neurotic woman of a certain age’ to my doctor.
