Hello this is my first post, diagnosed with underactive thyroid 3 months ago after a year of feeling awful, tired, low mood, weight gain, weepy etc. Started on 50mg levo after results of 5.8 tsh which initially made me feel much worse, headaches muscle aches in legs.
Saw gp had bloods done which came back today, he said all normal except cholesterol, managed to get copies so would appreciate your advice as still having painful legs especially at night in bed.
Serum ferritin 29 (15-300)
Serum vit b12 399 (180-300)
Serum folate 8.7
serum tsh 1.7 (0.35-4.7)
Red blood cell count 4.47 (4-5.2)
Platelet count 402 (150-400)
Monocyte count 0.58 (0.2-0.8)
Eosinophil count 0.1 (0.04 - 0.4)
serum cholesterol 7
Only advice was follow low fat diet for cholesterol result and do exercise, which I find difficult after dislocating and fracturing my shoulder whilst out walking a year ago - still having some discomfort, Thank you for any advice.
