I would very much appreciate your help. I have so many hypothyroid symptoms. I have felt awful for over a decade and I have done a lot of research into my symptoms and I come up with thyroid again and again.
My symptoms include;-
Feeling of pressure on windpipe. Almost a choking sensation at times.
Complete and utter exhaustion
Always feel cold
Numbness and tingling in fingers.
Inability to lose weight. Even on very restrictive diet.
Muscle cramps and weakness
Confusion of words and fuzzy mind
Depression (doesn't respond to medication)
My blood tests came back within normal range. Although I am low in iron, foliate and vitamin D.
My TSH was 3.0 mu/L. [0.3-5.5]
T3 was 5.4
T4 was 13
I don't have the ranges for the T3 and T4 tests as they weren't on the printout. The gp wrote the results on the bottom without the ranges.
I'm now on 3 x 20 micrograms of vit D, 5mg of folic acid and an iron supplement.
I still feel that a thyroid problem fits my symptoms more than these deficiencies, although I know they can be connected. The doc says that these are fairly new deficiencies anyway and I have felt this way for years.
Do my normal results rule out a thyroid problem?
