Had an appointment with the endo on Thursday. I have labrynthitis at the moment & so arrived feeling very dizzy, pounding head & was flushed from head to toe. Because it was so hot in there I just got hotter & redder!
The endo immediately started on about why there was no way I was getting NDT. He listened to all o had to say. But he kept referring back to how red I was & that lupus maybe the answer, or (because I have psoriasis) that it could be rheumatoid arthiritis.
He is testing this & wanted bloods.
When I asked about the levels of T3 he said my TSH was in normal range, but that maybe I would feel better with more T4. ( my dr would not put up the dose as my tsh was normal) so he now wants me to take 125mg of leverthyroxine for six weeks to get my T4 up to about 18 (11.0-23.0) last test Jan this year it was 13.9
So I'm wondering that as my symptoms have been worsening for the last 18-24mths if this will work given that last March my t4was 18.1 ??? Or do I need to ask for t3, or consider NDT
Tests results below
T4 18.1 pool/L(11.0-23.0)
TSH 0.21mu/L(0.3-5.5) -below range
No free T3 as TSH level has gone up?
