I have CFS and lots of symptoms. Recently I have less energy and no motivation. I have put on 5 stone in then last 2 years and literally feel like I am dragging myself around. My legs ache and feel like lead and both my achillies tendons hurt.
I have had private tests done as follows
TSH 3.5 (0.27-4.2)
Free thyroxine 11.3 (12-22)
Total thyroxine 75 (59-154)
Free T3 4 (3.1-6.8,)
Thyroglobulin antibody 16.2 (0-115)
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies 7.7 (0-34).
My GP has arranged an ultrasound of my thyroid as my neck is puffy but said that my symptoms are not due to thyroid problems as the NHS would not treat me until my TSH us over 10 and although my free T4 is low it must be ok for me otherwise my TSH would be higher.
My question is could my thyroid be making me feel so awful? Also, could it be possible that i have had hashimotos for some years now resulting in hypothyroidism?
