I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and I want to be armed with knowledge from you lovely people as you have been so helpful.
I was borderline and my doctor put me on Thyroxine 50 mg back in October/November and said that we would review at a later date. Weirdly my thyroid has now tipped over and I'm definitely hypothyroid.
Here are my results:
Serum Free T4 Level - 11.4 pmol/L (12.0 - 22.0) Below
Serum Free Triiodothyronine Level - 4.9 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
Serum TSH Level - 9.60 mu/L (0/3 - 4.2) Above
I felt a lot worse being borderline without any Levo and had tingling in my hands and feet, tiredness, dry hair and I gained a lot of weight and developed a goitre (which I still have) when I was 17, 8 years ago and I've been living with that every since with the symptoms getting worse, I'm now 25.
Now I still feel somewhat tired easily and have also kept the weight on and think I might've put more on since November. I also have muscle weakness and aches.
Thanks in advance!
