HI ya I'm new to the group.
Since September last year 2016 right up to March 2017 I had a common cold one one off to one for what seemed months.
After lots of blood test my GP told me my ft4 was low at (7.9) lab range 8.4-19.1. TSH 2.01 lab range 0.3 -5.0
Anti thyroid peroxidase 30 lab range <9
1Feeling like I have the flu with out the flu
2Pain in all my joints
3 pain around my throat- like a tight gripping feeling
4 shooting pain discomfort around the heart area
5 feeling sick like something was not right
6 all I wanted to do is sleep
I was given thyroid medication
I started started to feel better the within 2 months back to how I was feeling over xmas. I had a blood test to showed my ft4 had gone to 10.2 lab range 8.4-19.1 TSH 1.96 lab range 0.3 -5.0
Follow the blood test I asked my GP if we could increase the medication to see if I can get a level that works for me. The GP told me I can not increase meds with out seeing specialist.
The specialist has taken of the meds and told me my symptoms are not related to thyroid........ very confusing
We then agreed to come of the meds for 3 weeks have a blood test then go back to the specialist.
Today I got the blood test results and my ft4 is at 7.9 lab range 8.4-19.1 TSH 2.34 lab range 0.3 -5.0
Would I would like to know has anyone had the same symptoms as myself and do you think I could have a thyroid problem.
Sorry that's all a bit long, I wanted to give a true picture.
Any comments are very welcomed
