This is my first post, although I've been following Heathunlocked for a few weeks. I've had an
underactive thyroid for some 8-9 years and have been feeling good until the last couple of months.
I have pains in, hips, elbows, knees and ankles. feeling tired most of the time. I've out on more weight
just recently and generally feel and look awful, saying this I do have some good days. I'm seeing a rheumatologist on the 21st of July, in the hopes he/she can sort me out.
I'm on 100mcg of thyroxine, was 125mcg earlier this year. I've had a thyroid test recently and the resuslts are:
TSH level 1.07 miu/L [0.35 - 3.5]
FT3 Level 4.2 pmol/L [3.8 - 6]
FT4 level 14 pmol/L [8 - 21]
I did ask the doctor for a full blood test for my thyroid and this is what came back, with the
addition of liver, kidney and cholestrol test results.
I feel that something somewhere is not right and I really need some help/ advice.
Thankyou in advance
