For four years I have suffered from tingly hands and fingers, peeling dry scaly skin, extreme fatigue, massive weight gain and inability to lose it, extreme tiredness, depression and digestive problems.
My test results over this period for T4 are (latest first): 12.9, 13.3, 11.4, 10.6 11.7
and for TSH 2.08, 4.28, 2.17, 1.85,3.55
My GP says my results are normal but are they not on the low side of the normal range? Is it possible to have the condition without falling directly into the lower end of the range of results?
I am worried as my symptoms are really getting me down and are affecting my life in an adverse way.
I don't like to doubt my GP but it took 20 years of me asking to finally diagnose coeliac disease and it would never have been investigated without my insistence. I now feel that I am at the beginning of another battle and wonder if there are any shortcuts or other tests which can be taken? I am quite desperate and would really appreciate any advise.
