Just had an updated blood test result as follows
TSH 6.7 range 0.2 - 4.0
T4 13.2 range 11 - 22.6
T3 5.7 range 3.5 - 6.5
Cortisol and calcium were 'normal'
I posted the other day to say in August 16 my TSH was 4.5 and I had a test 20 years ago which said my TSH was 1.82 (before I felt really unwell)
Do you think it is reasonable to request a trial of levothyroxine from my GP or do I have to wait until my TSH is >10?.
I completed the symptom sheet and ticked about 75% of the symptoms and ache ALL the time to the point I am on OxyContin and amitryptaline.
I am grateful for any input please.
