Hi, I was diagnosed with under active thyroid after having had an over active thyroid a few weeks before. Apparently, I crashed! My latest results are Tsh 42 (0.3 - 5.5), T4 4.8 (12-22), T3 2.9(3.1-6.8) & thyroid peroxidase ant 110 (0-34). Have been taking 100mg levothyroxine for a week now and still feel lousy. I don't understand very much about thyroid issues and the terminology involved and I just don't have the energy to learn. Could anyone give me a picture of where I am with my thyroid based on these results? Is it good, bad, terrible? Should I get better quickly? Am I just being lazy? Docs signed me off work til end of month and I'm just resting. Feel low, lost & not sure where I am with it all, so if anyone can frame this so I can get my head around it, I would be really grateful. Not sure if relevant but I'm 44 and have been taking her for over 20 years too x
