I'm new to thyroid issues so looking for some help. I came down with Viral Meningitis in July, and after starting to feel good I came down with extreme fatigue about 6 weeks ago along with muscle weakness and bloating/digestion issues. I am extremely fatigued all the time and have been off work since.
My GP did some blood tests and along with a low immune system and white blood cell count, he noticed that my TSH was 'borderline' - it's 6.54.
Also if this means anything to you, my free T4 level was 11, it says the normal range is 9-22 so I'm within that?
I have no experience of Thyroid, in fact I don't know anything about it, but from brief research am I right in thinking that this is probably not helping my fatigue and recovery? My GP is willing to start me on 25mg of Levothyroxine to see if this helps.
Any thoughts would be really helpful as I have know knowledge or experience of this.
