I’m feeling so desperate, for the last 2 years my annual blood test my results have been so say normal, (I've been underactive for 8 years) even though I had been feeling exhausted. I accepted it the first year, if it says normal it must be right. After having my next test in August again last year I still accepted it but since then I seem to gradually feel even worse and thought maybe something else is wrong, I went back and asked for another test (results below) and as far as the doctor is concerned they were normal, but after explaining how bad I’m feeling and that I literally have no energy, I’m sleeping or needing to sleep more, with tingling and aching muscles in my arms and legs, which feel like lead weights when I wake In the morning and tells him that it is really affecting my mood, I would say that I’m depressed, but I think it’s more to do with the fatigue and feeling like I’m in my 80’s when I’m 48. It’s affecting my work and basically consumes my thoughts most of the day, the dr said he would up my levo, putting me up to 125 and that I should go back in 8 weeks for another blood test.
TSH 3.98 (0.27-4.20)
Folate 3.2 (2.50-19.50)
Ferritin 265 (30 -470)
Serum sodium 144 (133-146)
Serum potassium 3.7 (3.50-5.30)
Serum creatinine 74 (45-84)
And blood count, bone profile etc which all came up “normal”
I have now managed to get T3 included in my next test which is in 4 weeks’ time.
Since the increase I think I’m actually feeling worst, I’m not sleeping so well at night even though I’m tired. Could someone offer some advice please and also I need to mention I do evening dancing (after a couple of hrs sleep in the afternoon) sometimes 4 hours on a weekend, I read in someone else’s post that exercise uses all of your T3 (or something like that) I must admit nowadays I rarely leave the sofa on a Sunday. Sorry for the long post, all comments appreciated, this is my first post, thank you for reading, hoping for advice to get me through the next 4 weeks.
