Hi just wanted to post some blood results that i payed private with biolab ..i stared taking thyroxine in March after having to force my Gp's hand as my tsh was at 4.67 not over 5 which is top of range ..but felt so unwell he started me on 25mcg then up to 50mcg ... i was still feeling poorly but my bloods after 6 weeks showed my tsh had reduced down to 1.39 but i was still feeling poorly ..i have b12 injections every 12 weeks as I'm a coeliac and don't absorb very well ,and my VitD was adequate ...so i couldn't understand why i still had weak painful arms and a burning sensation in my body a type of neuropathy ..i had no choice other than to pay Bio lab in london for private bloods My FT4 is 17 (9-22) FT3 4.64 (2.63-5.70) TSH 0.19 (0.35-22.0) i was a bit concerned that my TSH was so low but i feel ok But what i did have tested was my B Vits .... B1 Borderline ...B2 ...deficient ....B6 borderline ..so it looks like my weak arms and pains and dry crusty scalp and neuropathy are due to these being LOW and not my thyroid !! Well worth the money to stop me now keep blaming my thyroid the GP has given me strong B complex which i hope will sort things out ? `the only thing that worries me is the low TSH ? Your thoughts on this post would be appreciated ..many thanks xxxxxxxx
