I'm a British expat living in SE Asia. I'm having problems getting an endocrinologist. For the last year I have experienced constant fatigue, very bad muscle pain that is really bad in the morning, random joint pains, hair loss, menorrhagia. I am in constant pain and this week I couldn't walk properly as my ankle felt badly swollen.
I was concerned that I may have a problem with my thyroid due to having Graves so I requested a test today. The test says that it is in normal range but for me I think my total T3 count is very low and I am unsure if the normal range is within the normal range for British women.
Here are my results:
Total T3 = 62.9 ng (range 58 - 159)
Total T4 = 5.93 µg (range 4.87 - 11.72)
TSH = 1.870 uIU/ml (range 0.350 - 4.940)
Do these ranges look like the normal ranges on your tests? My T3 level is very low in comparison to my other results - anyone experienced this before? If anyone could shed some light I'd be very grateful.
