I went to my doctor specifically about fatigue and brain fog with which I am at the end of my rope. An initial blood test showing a slightly high TSH level of 7.03 (ref range 0.55-4.78) which triggered him to order more tests and ask about other symptoms of hypothyroidism the following of which I have:
- sensitivity to cold
- dry hair and skin
- difficulty keeping weight off
- slow pulse rate (45-50bpm)
After the results came back the doctor says it isn't hypothyroidism and is essentially stumped as to what could be wrong with me. The results were:
FT3 - 5.4 (ref range 3.5-6.5)
FT4 - 14.6 (ref range 9.2-23.9)
I understand that these are pretty optimal figures. All other test results; liver, kidney, anemia, lipids, urinine, all came back very good.
I have also done audio recordings of my sleep and asked my wife about my sleep but have found no evidence of sleep apnea which may have explained some of the symptoms.
Is there something the doctor could have possibly missed or am i just some medical anomaly?
