i have just had back my first blood test since PT in November.
TSH 0.39 (0.35-5.00)
Ft4. 6.8. (9.0-20.0)
Ft3 2.8. (2.5- 5.7)
The tests a week before my op were (Same ranges)
For both tests I was on 20mg t3 only (not taken on day of draw) plus take a range of nutri supplements. I feel generally ok most of the day though do lack energy until the evening when I feel I run out of steam and then can often feel achey as if I was coming down with flu. I did feel quite well at the pre op levels.
My question to you learned people out there is what should I do from here? Ask for an increase of t3 and stay t3 only or add some t4 into the mix. I was given thyroxine last summer and never felt so ill in my life and had to stop after 2 months so wary about trying that again, however this is a long journey and also feel I shouldn't shut off options without giving them a try.
I am seeing the endo on the 27th and I don't have much confidence in her ability but she does seem to be receptive to what I want to do which is why I am trying to find that out first (who's the expert here???)
Also have no idea if it is connected but I keep waking up in the middle of the night always between 3-4am. I would love to be able to just get a good nights sleep. Does anyone think this is related to being undermedicated?
Thanks for all your help x
