Earlier this month I went to see my GP - to cut a long story short she said I should have a blood test & rung me up a few days later to tell me I was hypothyroid. This was a huge shock, as other than a bit of dry skin & hair I felt ok -ish. I hadn't been sleeping for a few weeks & blamed other symptoms (forgetful, grumpy etc) on this. It was the sleep issue that prompted me to see GP. Anyhow, having read up on the topic & read posts on here, I asked for a copy of blood results -
Serum T4 6.7 pmol/L (9-19)
Serum TSH 91.13 mu/L (0.355-4.94mu/L)
TSH seems so off the scale,so I am wondering if there is an error?
On GP's instruction I have been taking meds, but feel worse in some ways than before - legs often feel heavy, I feel a bit spaced out sometimes & have a constant throb/ache in throat. 'Get up & go' has got up & gone!
Should the meds have kicked in by now?
