I recently had a blood test done because I kept getting sick, and basically just felt ill constantly. I suspect I have had something since childhood, but I learned to live with it. My blood test showed a slightly raised TSH - 6,4. My doctor has put me on eltroxin and I have been taking it for about 2 months now. I feel a hundred times worse after bein on medication, but my TSH has dropped to 4,8 so it makes no sense to me. Furthermore it seems that my doctor doesn't see a connection with the getting sick all of the time. Lately I've been experiencing intense pain in different parts of my body. The pain will stay in one spot and then move on to a different one. It has gotten so bad that I have a hard time sleeping at night. I also have sore muscles, especially in my legs. I am still tired, have brain fog and stomach aches. These aren't symptoms of aging, since I'm 19, but is sure does feel like my body is shutting down.
It worries me that I feel this sick with an almost normal TSH, and I'm beginning to have difficulties with school and sociaising. Has anyone with a thyroid issue experienced something similar? Might I have another illness? I just want to get better
