Going down hill fast

Does anyone else feel like they can physically tell when their levels are gone?

Ive posted over the last few days about my thyroid and my test results. My TSH level came back 'normal' and I am waiting for T3 and T4 to come back along with a few other tests they ran.

I am getting a lot of the psychological symptoms. I dont have trouble getting to sleep but its restless and nightmares are off the scale. I wake up feeling dreadful and full of anxiety. I know im depressed with it all too. No libido whatsoever.

I cant see my doctor for 2 weeks so wont get results or clarification on what is happening and I just dont know what to do now.

I really feel this is thyroid but evidence so far says it isnt. 

What is the best course of action?

Your TSH and FT3 results don't indicate undermedication.  It would be helpful to have ferritin, vitamin D, B12 and folate tested as they are often low/deficient in hypothyroid patients which can cause musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and low mood similar to hypothyroid symptoms.
