Okay so just been to see the doctor after my bloods results, and I must admit I was quite pleased with this new doctor.
Unfortunately they only tested my TSH which came out at 0.65 (0.35-2.1) so she was happy to keep me on the 125mg of Levo.
However as I told her I was feeling quite achy in the bones and joints and was aware it could be connected to my Thyroid, and last june they did a full work up and my T4 and T3 while both in range (just) were very high and I wondered if perhaps I was maybe overmedicated...
So she's re-ordered the blood test to include all of them again in a couple of weeks and if my T4 is high again like the 22,1 (12-23) it was last year she said I could reduce my meds down to 100 to try and get it to around 16.
So overall I am pleased she was listening and last years lab results were:
TSH 0.35 (0.35-2.1)
T4 22.1 (12-23)
T3 (can't remember but was top end of scale)
So my question... I was reading that the aches and pains were mostly due to being underactive, but can they also be atributed to over active? As my labs show that I should have been optimal last year yet I was feeling really rough and was feeling like through the year I was deteriorating more and more..
However since my bloods two weeks ago I started taking Vit D and Vit B supplements and I did notice last weekend that I had more strength than I have had in a long time as I was able to carry both of my diving cylinders upstairs without stopping! Previously I couldn't go a few steps with just one without needing to stop.... not at peak yet but have only been on the supplements for two weeks
So second question could my aches and pains have been more related to a deficiency in the Vit D and B supplements?
If so then thank you HealthUnlocked as I would never have thought to try and get some of them without reading this forum!
