I've felt unwell for last 2 years with tiredness, muscle aches, really heavy periods, foggy brain ect. I've got anemia and tsh borderline on each blood test I've had.
In June I was really suffering so went back and had more tests these are the results.
TSH 6.66. (0.4-5.5)
T4 12.3 (10.3-24.5)
Vit D 48 (50-120)
B12 370 (174-1132)
Folate 9.5 (4.2-18.7)
Ferritin 16.7 (13-150)
So TSH is high and has been creeping up over last 2 years last sep it was 5.74 then in January it was 6.17 my ferritin is higher than usual it's usually more like 12-14.
So doctor has told me to take a high dose of vit d, I'm on 5000 a day and he has said to retest in 3 months and if no improvement will trial thyroxine apparently if vit d so low thyroxine will not be effective.
I'm due to get the new bloods done first week of sep, also I've heard getting the tests done earlier in the day is better, why is this? All my other tests were done at around 1.30-2pm. I'm feeling really tired a nap is required each day. I'm waking at least 3 times a week with aches in arms and legs and my last two periods have been so heavy I've been unable to leave the house for 2 days and my hair feels a lot thinner also zero sex drive.
It seems that no gp will look at the whole picture they just treat each thing separately, any advice on what to say?
