I have been feeling rubbish for a number of weeks and finally went to the doctors. I am on 100mcg Thyroxine and have been for a few years.
The main symptoms were extreme fatigue, severe wind problems, headaches, weakness, dry skin but with boils, teary but only over how I feel. I had tests done last Thursday and I just spoke to my GP (who is maternity cover for my usual one) and she said the test results were all fine. Since the tests were taken I have had really swollen fingers over the weekend - not been able to wear my wedding ring. She did Full blood count, sugars and Thyroid (also did vitamin D but that is not back yet). I wouldn't understand FBC or sugars but I asked about Thyroid ones. TSH 0.9, T4 20.2, T3 4.8. She didn't give me ranges so I know I need to ask and I am not giving you the full picture.
From a bit of googling I wonder if the T3 is low and I might not be converting well. I am also pretty sure that at my annual test in Feb my TSH was 0.05 - Is 0.05 to 0.9 a big jump??
The GP said she will see me tomorrow to talk about it more. She keeps telling my lifestyle is making me tired (that lifestyle is being asleep between 9.30 and 10 every night - struggling to last until then but once I have fetched the kids after work, sorted them out and got them to bed then done washing etc that is as early as I can manage. I work 3 days a week, have a cleaner to help with the housework and have 2 boys age 8 and 4 so no waking babies - she hasn't asked about my lifestyle before telling me that). I feel my life is pretty great and I should not feel like this.
I will ask for all results and ranges to see if any are lower end. I just wondered if anyone had any thoughts about my results or about what else I might ask for.
