Sorry - I don't seem able to edit the original post (time limit?) to update but hopefully this is the link:
So, before I got the BH results, I had been able to get an appt. with Dr I have seen " a lot" since the end of last year, as I said; this was mainly due to my fears about diabetes but the BH test results came by email, so I was thankfully able to have the chance to mention them to him (as advised by BH re. the CRP)
He pretty much dismissed the CRP being elevated, also the previous Transferrin Saturation Level (low) as not a concern (chuckled slightly when I told him that I had printed an article out form a University study, but forgotten it....) - when both of these things are forewarning (and CRP is both a cause and a consequence of possible) cardiac problems (esp. as I am pretty much anemic and not able to tolerate ferrous anything....). He said that the HbA1c test could be done to look for diabetes (which I really should not have - based on lifestyle.....), but the tingling and burning is something he has (of course; I am unique, don't you know) never EVER heard of.....
As for the TSH having risen by 1.0 in a about 2 months, he said that any kind of trial of medication might cause me even more problems.
All of which leaves me just about where I have always been - without support and yet another note about being a hypochondriac and suffering from a mental illness (but nothing physical) on my record.
BUT - apart from this whinge, that is my main question for clever people who might read this post: IF TSH is high-ish (and I keep reading that <1.0 is ideal and one will not feel well if it is over 2.0) at 3.67, what am I to do - in light of the T4 and T3 being what they are (14.7 and 5.8)?
Is this TSH level of no relevance then? I am so confused (especially in light of all the physical external and less obvious stuff, which was, as usual, disregarded.

Any help is welcome........ xx
