I am not diagnosed but something is just not right!
I had some blood tests done in December and was told to come back after 3 months or so if symptoms persist.
So what test should I get this time? What should I ask for?
Blood tests from December:
Tsh 1.55 (0.25-5)
T4 free 13.67 (9-20)
T3 free 3.67 (4-8.3)
Ferritin 36.81 (25-280)
Cholesterol LDL 2.74 (<2.59)
cholesterol HDL 0.69 (1.04-1.56)
Cholesterol Total 3.85 (<5.20)
I got iron tablets and multivitamins given in December.
Nothing was said about the low T3
Days i feel tired and can't get through a day without a nap which is not my usual behaviour.
Muscle pain (some days worse than others). Mainly thighs and upper arms. I sometimes have to take pain killers for this.
Occasional headaches - I have never suffered from headaches.
Sore breasts - comes and goes. sometimes feels like when the milk runs to when breastfeeding!
No weight loss no matter what I do (exercise or diet)
I am a yoga teacher and consider myself fairly active physically.
I am 42, female, mother of 4 (2 children staying home), teaching yoga 5 x weekly + personal practice, squash x 2 weekly, studying, and engaged in the local community.
Thanks for your help!
Have a great day!
