I have found some results on system online from my blood tests yesterday so not had a chance to discuss with Dr but would like to go forearmed, I would really appreciate some help with these. FYI I am on 175mg levothyroxine
This is whats back so far from my bloods yesterday:

FERRITIN - Guide to interpretation.
[ < 15 ] [ 16 to 40 ] [ 41 to 400] [ Greater than 400 ]
[.Low..] [Borderline] [..Normal..] [.......High.......]
Ferritin is an acute phase protein. Interpretation must take into
account FBC results, age, sex and clinical episode. In persistently
high ferritins consider Iron overload or Haemochromatosis.
I feel really really awful and if it helps my current symptoms are:
I feel totally exhausted all the time and have a physical weakness I have never Experienced before. Lifting things I have lifted all my adult life are really hard and I've always been really strong. It seems accumulative and unless I have proper breaks like a lay down in the afternoon I can barely move. Just feel like I am dragging myself around. Although rest isn't restorative it does stop me getting to the point all I can do is go to bed
If I overdo manual work my arms and legs can get quite shaky as if I’ve over done it at the gym but its only things I have been doing for years.
I have seen things and people that aren’t there and a couple of times ’ had’ conversations which seemed very real but wasn't.
forgetful and foggy headed
Craving carbs and sweet stuff (which I'm not usually bothered by sweet things)
Eating doesn't increase energy levels
Urgent urination (no discomfort or pain urunating)
Frequent upset stomach - pretty much every day
Sleeping badly but doze off in the day if I get the chance, getting up in the morning is a real struggle
Face like a ballon all my chins have filled in to one mega chin
overweight - have really piled it on
constant headaches that never go away
Anxiety - I get anxious over things I wouldn’t normally or sometimes for no real reason
can’t seem to get the words straight in my head sometimes, I have to concentrate to say what I want to
i’m also noticing that my hearing seems to not be as sharp as it was
thinning eyebrows again
I also crave tea and coffee and have never previously really drunk very much of it, maybe one or two cups a day at the most!
total intolerance to noise, I want to kill anyone if they have the TV on or music
occasional rashes and very itchy skin
feel the cold a lot
I have recently had numbness in my legs and arms but not currently
breathing problems and pick up any infection very easily
Thank you to anyone who can help!
