Hi I'm looking for some advice please. I was diagnosed with hashimotos about 2 years ago during which time my levels have been checked every the months to get my levels of levothyroxine correct. During this time weight gain of 3stone and whatever I do and honestly I have tried everything... I can't shift it, im also 18 months gluten free which really has helped with symptoms and made me feel more human again . I got to my first within Normal tsh back in July at 1.4 and was told I would not be tested again for 12 months and to continue on 100mcg daily of levo. All is being looked after by my gp I have not been referred to endocrinology as yet.
Bringing you up to date since 30th December I have felt absolutely dreadfull, the worst yet in fact... fatigue like never before.... I'm used to the up and down blips like when I have overdone things etc but this had been constant. Just like I have been hit by a truck. Even trying to think is impossible at times and draining. Brain fog Is an understatement, hair loss, not much appetite, weakness, feeling so cold just to name a few symptoms.
I visited drs on Friday who was fantastic and ordered urgent bloods to include the usual thyroid bloods along with vitamin B and D and also cortisol..... results today frustratingly normal
T3 5.3 <4-8.3>
T4 11.6 <10-24>
Tsh 3.9 <0.4 - 4.5>so this has increased from 1.4 in July but still within Normal
Tpo 1068 <34... was 264 in July... But I understand this isn't relevant as only an indicator that auto immune is present
Any Suggestions of why having felt so much better prior to this blip I'm feeling so dreadful now?
I have an autistic son and I so need to be fighting fit, I hate him seeing me so done in 😥😥
