I had an overactive thyroid from mid November2015 to end of Jan 2016 due to an inflammation to my thyroid gland. My tsh was extremely low during this period. Something like 0.02. Eventually the inflammation subsided with the help of anti inflammatory ibuprofen really.
At that time my antibodies were negative.
Near the end of January, all tests were done again and my tsh was still low with t3 t4 and antibodies being fine. On both occasions antibodies were more near the lower range. E.g. one of them was around 23 when it should be less than 115.
In march started to have neuropathic pains. I was tested for b12 and it was 138. I was given loading dose of 6 injections. I was already on vit D since November 2015.
Pains were improving slowly, I think. In may I got tested again and my tsh t3 and t4 all were in good range and I was feeling quite good. Had good energy and only occasional pains. Tsh was around 1.5.
I had a good month but then by the end of 3rd week of June a sudden weakness gripped my arms, as if there is less signal in them. Even my hands grip became poor, not that I am dropping things but I could feel the difference. My arms are still getting tired quickly e.g. if I have to go through the hangers in my wardrobe I would struggle after half a minute. It's not trembling badly or anything. After a few days my legs felt weak as well. It's an effort to get off the toilet. My muscle power is quite less and I can't work at my usual speed and strength. Muscles are easily aching as well. My occasional neuropathic pains are still there but luckily not continuous.
My latest (beginning of July) test results show:
Tsh 4.2 (0.3- 4.5)
T3 5.3 (3.10- 6.80)
T4 17.4 (11- 22)
B12 and D are fine. Loads of other things are fine like Fbc, ferritin, folate, ck, kidney function, potassium, etc etc.
My doc has referred me to a neurologist but God only knows when will that come?😢.
I have been asking for a referral since March. When the referral comes I don't even know if the specialist will take any interest in scanning my brain / spine. I doubt.
