I've been hypo for over a year and a half. During most of that time I have never felt back to my usual self - tiredness, aches and pains, brain fog, coldness etc. However, from June until October I stated to feel "normal" for me. It was great !
Then over the last few months I started to see the old things creeping back in again. The main thing at the moment is how much my body aches.
Also this week had some sort of "episode" where I just felt very drained very quickly and had to sit still for half an hour (In the morning - had not been doing anything unusual) whilst it passed, This has happened before but not for a long time.
I'm 41 and take 125mg thyroxin. My most recent thyroid tests show TSH 0.99 (0.34-5.4) and T4 20.6 (9-24) -very similar to results I had in August. I've had my Vitamin D tested and it was 43 in February (Range 25 -170)
I have had full blood counts in the past and they show that my haemoglobin levels are fine but ferratin usually on the low side. The 2 doctors I've had both said this is not an issue. Have taken various iron supplements and it doesn't seem to affect my ferratin level.
Currently taking Floradix and Vit. D (1000iu)
Why did I feel so well before and not now ? The doctor has no answers !
