My nice GP ordered an early re test on my thyroid as I was feeling so awful since starting on levo.
I am still feeling pretty awful. A few hours of feeling a little better but long periods of feeling terrible. Headaches from tablets are beginning to recede, that god! Was getting headache every night.not weeping so often, was breaking down into tears every few hours but its subsiding and my depression seems to be more stable.
My results are as follows:
TSH 2.35 mlU/L (0.3 - 3.94)
T4. 14.3 pmol/L (12.3 - 20.2)
T3. 4.2 pmol/L (3.7 - 6.7)
This companies to 5 weeks ago when they were
TSH - 4.22 (0.3 - 3.94)
T4. - 11.3 (12.3 - 20.2)
T3 - not tested first time
My vitamin D is insufficient :
Serum total hydroxy vitamin D 26 nmol/L outside reference range.
He has given me a supplement to take twice a week for 7 weeks then he says he's going to retest my thyroid and vit D.
Gp hasn't tested my B12 as he said my blood count on first blood test was reasonable. Does this seem fair? Or should I go and get it tested privately? I have been on ppis for over a decade and have struggled with as yet undiagnosed stomach pain, low appetite and nausea, lots of wind for 7 months. Trying to come off ppis but am stuck as 15mg.
I don't know why I am still feeling so bloody rough. Struggling to get out of bed, do anything. Pushing myself to try, but just feel like shit all the time. Except for odd few hours here and there.
Thanks in advance.
