Last March I posted my results and asked for opinions. The answer everyone came back with was that I was under-medicated and not doing very well on my meds. Here is what has happened since seeing my Endo in March
March results were : TSH 1.87 (0.3-5.5), fT4 15.3 (12-22), fT3 5 (3.1-6.8) Then dose was increased from 75mcg levothyroxine to 75 one day 100 the next.
June results were : TSH 1.32 ( as ^ ), fT4 14.3 ( as ^ ), fT3 4.5 ( as ^ )Then dose increased to 100mcg levo every day
August results were: TSH 1.51 ( as ^ ), fT4 17.4 ( as ^ ), fT3 5.2 ( as ^ ) Kept on 100mcg/day until Nov
November results : TSH 1.70 ( as^ ), fT4 15.5 ( as ^ ), fT3 4.7 ( as ^ ) Then increased to100mcg of levo + 10mcg of T3 /half a tablet every day
January results are : TSH 1.35 ( as^ ), fT4 12.1 ( as ^ ), fT3 4.4 ( as ^ )
I also had serum B12 done 426 ng/L (191-663)
My white blood cell count is also above range
I also now have another big problem, what I thought was sciatica has now been diagnosed as foraminal stenosis in L4 which is pressing on nerves + bulging disc. They've said I'm too young (46) and not being at my optimal level with my thyroid and being overweight with blood pressure they don't want to go down the major surgery route. The consultant did ask though if I had been tested for antibodies, would this explain that even though my doses have increased the blood results are going the wrong way?
I can't say that i feel much better on the T3 yet, is that because it is such a low dose ? Why has my fT4 almost gone under range. Still have all the syptoms as listed last year falling asleep, hair falling out, brittle nails, brain fogs,depression, weight gain, pain everywhere, depression, High blood pressure.......and so on.
Can anyone shed any light and give me some direction?
