Hi everyone I am new here.
I just got my results back from blue horizon and was told everything was in normal range. I have had thyroid symptoms going on for 14 years now but was only over tested on my tsh levels.
My symptoms are,
-Black rings around my eyes,
-Moon shaped tubby face no matter how hard I exercise and look after my diet.
-Pale white skin regardless of getting sun.
-Daily fatique every day.
-Hairloss + dry brittle hair. (No history of hair loss in my family)
-Poor sex drive.
-Right hand is always cold sometimes ice cold.
-Pins and Needles down the right hand side of my face and head 24/7 for nearly two years now. Waiting on an MRI after seeing a neurologist 2 months ago. Still no word on when this MRI is Booked for.
I am in good shape cause my diet is good with morderate exercise and I never eat processed food or any sweets. The only place I retain weight is in the face. Fat pale face with panda eyes on a ripped body.
My hemoglobin is slightly low this last 4 months but the doctor said my b12 and iron levels are perfect and last week said the hemoglobin is slowly climbing back up an she will test in another few months. Was 12.2 a few months ago and now its 12.7 (male) All of my above thyroid symptoms have been present years an years before any low blood count, so I'm sure its not the culprit.
I bought a years supply of NDT before I did the private blood test but have not taken any yet so the results below are baseline figures with no treatment. My NHS TSH levels were slightly higher a few months ago at 2.83
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 90 nmol/L. 59 - 154
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.58 mIU/L. 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE 14.9 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 4.2 pmol/L 3.1 - 6.8
THYROID ANTIBODIES Thyroglobulin Antibody <10.0 IU/mL. 0-115 (Negative)
Method used for Anti-Tg: Roche Modular
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 5.2 IU/mL 0 - 34
Method used for Anti-TPO: Roche Modular
Can anyone tell me if it is possible that these results could be making me symptomatic or am I barking up the wrong tree? I know going to the doctor with these results is pointless as the TSH is within normal range so they will not even consider treating it. Would supplementing NDT cause my thyroid to shut down its natural ability to produce its own hormones or am I over thinking it? I really want to get rid of these God awful symptoms. Sorry for the crazy long post. Any input/help would be really good.
