Could someone please help me interpret my blood test results?
I have having blood tests every 6 weeks since last June when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and each time my gp says all my levels are fine. I have been on 50g eltroxin since my diagnosis. I asked the health nurse in October to do a B12 test and my level was 114, so I received 4 injections of 1000mg B12 for 4 weeks. In November, I told my GP that I would like to return to work, but that I can't function at all.
I feel exhausted all the time, but am unable to sleep. I have anxiety, this was diagnosed at 23 yrs. I feel nervous and on edge all the time, but this may have more to do with constant bullying by my sister who is also living at home. I have daily headaches and pains in my eyes. I feel nauseous and weak and am constantly crying. Sometimes I feel overwhelming bursts of anger. I can't stop worrying about everything all the time. I am on cymbalta for anxiety for the anxiety and panic attacks and stilnoct for sleep for many years. I have lost my eyebrows and my hair is growing white.
I have read loads and recounted it all to my doctor especially about the adrenal glands, but she said it is not possible to treat adrenal issues which Im convinced I have, from many years working in very stressful IT jobs. I also suffer from Rosacea for the last 13 yrs. The week before my period begins, I get blackouts. Sometimes it feels like there is an electric charge in my brain, then I hear a loud bang inside my head, everything goes black, a second later Im gasping for breath, thinking Im going to die. The few days before my period begins, my anxiety levels are insane. I literally cant leave the house for a few days. I also get severe period pain for about 4 days along with blinding headaches, weakness, eye pain. This lasts at least a week and my period goes on for about 10 days.
I have completely changed my diet and do not eat any sugar or processed foods and eat a large amount of foods to support the thyroid daily. My 2 main fears of holding down a job are my memory and exhaustion. My memory has effectively been wiped out. Its so scary. My last job was as an IT project manager and it was in the last few months of that job that I knew something was seriously wrong with my health. I could barely function with the anxiety, tiredness, exhaustion and stress. I know that my managers expected too much of me and piled on the work because after a few months in that job, I found out that my colleagues joked to themselves of when I would have a nervous breakdown. I last visited my GP 2 weeks ago to get the results of a full blood test she suggested as she made an appointment for me to see and endocrinologist. I received a letter 6 weeks ago to say Im on a waiting list and am yet to receive an appointment. As I am not currently working, I can not afford to see a private endocrinologist. I told her I was worried about the crying, worrying and feeling sad and down all the time. She said my blood tests were fine, it was not the thyroid which she said was stable and suggested I see a counsellor.
I rang a few days ago for a print out of my blood tests. My GP will not do any kind of test involving T3. I do not have antibodies for Hashimotos
Free T4 - 14.6
TSH - 1.96
LH - 7.5
FSH - 4.8
Folate - 4.5
Ferritin - 15
B12 - 590 (Due to injections)
I am a bit worried about the lymphocytes, calcium and potassium as there was an asterix next to these
Lymphocites - 3.52
Potassium - 5.5
Calcium - 2.46
Magnesium or Vit D was not tested
Apologies for the length of the post and the rambling that occurs. I would be grateful if anyone could help
