Hello All. I am a new member and this is my first post. I ordered the thyroid test from medichecks since my GP wouldn't do the T3 or Antibodies tests. I wanted to have them done so I could rule out hypo as a possible problem for my symptoms. Everything seems in normal range so was wondering if there is anything with the thyroid results I need to worry about?
For the last 20 years I have had Hypo type symptoms and every Dr I have been to over that time has told me I might be hypothyroid but test results have always been within "normal" range. Just the usual things; can't get warm, overwhelming fatigue, headaches, depression, anxiety, brain fog.
In the last 10 years the symptoms have been worse. But in the last 4 years the fatigue has been worse - to the point where I have to stop what I am doing and go lay down and crash for several hours.
In the last four months, the fatigue has been bad and have also had horrible joint and muscle pain over the whole body. I am also starting to enter menopause.
The first time my Vitamin D was tested (2009) I was living in sunny Los Angeles. At that time it was low though I don't know the exact number. A year ago here in the uk my Vitamin D was still low....silly me, I don't know that number either but know it was still low. Problem is that I have a very sensitive stomach and supplements tend to make me feel ill. I have found Solgar D 2500 IU liquid that doesn't bother me and I take that four times a day. I am due for another Vitamin D test next week to see if it's helping (I WILL get the numbers this time!)
Folate is low on this blood work, it was low a year ago as well. Not sure if it was ever tested in the states. Have been taking Jarrow Vitamin B Complex but I guess that isn't helping.
CRP is high, but down from 15 where it was 3 months ago. (GP doesn't know why, I have been to Rhuematologist to rule things out there)
Thanks in advance for any thoughts regarding the thyroid results!
