Blood taken as a check for my Slight CHD this week - all read ok except
mean cell haemoglobin concentration -below range- 318g/l (320.0-350.0)
serum bilirubin level - above range - 123umol/L (<17.0)
Serum TSH level - below range - 0.20 mlU/L (12.3 - 20.2)
serum free T4 level - 18.4 pmol/l (12.3 - 20.2) ?on T4. RSJ (not sure what this meant?)
Have not been feeling at all well so went to doctors y/day - throbbing painful feet/legs arms - pain all over - racing heart & extreme fatigue - not helped at all by sleep - in fact all worse when trying to sleep & after resting! But because of pain cannot exercise or even walk much - got trouble with my hip/back & fibromyalgia since 2000 so am completely fed up not knowing what is causing what symptoms !!!
Dr said to reduce from 125mg levothyroxine to 100mg as too high - this would be why I had these symptoms.
I am due to see the endocrinlogist on Tuesday had t3 for a couple of months but made symptoms worse - so for the last 3 months been back on T4 125mg . Gradually been feeling worse since I last went & cannot shift any of the weight I have gained which is not helping the situation either !!?
Not really sure where to go from here - just keep paying £100-£125 - so want to make sure I know what to ask for when I go again Tuesday !
I also had a full set of bloods taken two weeks ago which he should have when I go - Can anybody explain what these results above may mean & what I should do/ask??
many thanks - sorry for long question ??
