My recent blood tests are very worrying to me but not to my GP. I have an elevated ESR with elevated eosinophil count and low basophil count. At the same time (September 2015) my thyroid function test showed T4 to be 0.3 pmo/L (normal range 12-22 pmo/L) and T3 3.7 pmo/L (normal range 3.1 - 6.8 pmo/L). I was taking 60mcg T3 only at the time and my GP suggested I take a small 25mcg dose of Thyroxine which I had discontinued 12 months earlier as recommended by Dr P. I was extremely depressed with brain fog, cold and tired. My GP also prescribed Prozac 3 weeks ago and the depression is lifting. But I feel quite ill - thick sticky mucuous (sorry!), especially at night, itchy skin, lightheaded, acid reflux, joint pain (I've had this for 5 years or so - Dr P suggested it was caused by Thyroxine but discontinuing thyroxine made no difference whasoever to joint pain). I'm at my wits end to be honest - sometimes, in the night, I think I'm going to choke with the sticky gunk in my throat. I'd be very grateful if anyone has any ideas how I can address these problems. Sorry for the long post.
