This is the first time I have asked a question here I am convinced I have hypothyroidism, I have a diagnosis of RA and some years ago I was told I had secondary Fibromyalgia that varies depending which rheumatologist I see. For the last 2-3 years my symptoms have got much worse, apart from chronic fatigue I have terrible constant tingling in my hands and feet, I now have tinnitus, chronic constipation, my cholesterol level has gone through the roof, I am unable to control my body temperature, so I am either very hot or feel very cold. I am constantly clearing my throat and by the evening I feel as though I have a lump in it. My weight is going up yet my appetite is lessening, my sense of taste is virtually not existent these are just a few of the constant symptoms. I asked my GP to test for Hypo and she did a lot of other tests.
Vit D level Normal 72.84nmol/L (50.00 - 140.00nmol/L)
B12/folate Level Normal
Serum Vit B12 335 ng/L (197.00 - 771.00ng/L)
Serum Folate 5.3ug/L (4.60 - 18.7ug/L)
Serum TSH Normal 1.67 miu/L (0.25 - 5.00miu/L)
Cholesterol was 8
I take prescribed Vit D supplements 2000iu per day
I went back to the GP and she agreed to a blood test for the Thyroid Antibodies which I have not got a copy of and is apparently normal. I have asked her for T3 and T4 she has agreed to T4 and I am getting that done this week, all my tests were early morning fasting test. I seem to be able to tick practically every symptom of Hypothyroidism yet my results don't bear this out.
