I finally got my recent blood results (including T3) and got to see my GP. He said all my results are normal, including my thyroid results and B12. The only problem he can see is high serum osmolality and he will refer me to endocrinologist to check for diabetes insipidus – very rare disease affecting water balance. He said that its unlikely though, and if it comes as negative he will diagnose Fibromyalgia.
Tingling in fingers of both hands
Ringing in the ears
Irritability, impatience and mood swings
Easy bruising and wounds taking long time to heal
Increased susceptibility to and increased length of cold/flu
Im currently taking: 150ug levothyroxine, 3x210 ferrous fumarate (iron was 5umol/L [5-33] 5weeks ago) with 3000ug vitC daily, vitD 5000iu daily with K2 MQ7 and magnesium, B100 complex, B12 2000iu sublingually (started after last blood test) and selenium 100ug.
My latest blood results:
TSH <0.03 mu/L [0.2-6]
Free T4 19.9 pmol/L [10-20] , that was 18.4 5weeks ago
Free T3 5.6 pmol/L [3.5-7]
Vit B12 424 ng/L [180-910], this was 308 5weeks ago and I supplemented with B100 complex since then
Serum folate 18.47 ng/ml [5.5-24], this was 16.7 5weeks ago
Serum CORTISOL 331.47 nmol/L [range at 9am 120-620, range random 85-450, test done at 8:30am]
Also, sex hormones were done if anybody knows anything about them, Im on the mini-pill so I don’t know which range should I look at.
FSH 5.3 u/L [range follicular 1.3-6.3, range mid-cycle 2.3-20.9]
LH 4.7 u/L [range follicular 0.8-25, range mid-cycle 25-57]
Oestradiol 120.87 pmol/L [range follicular 102-631]
Prolactin 198.6 mu/L [<400]
I thought that low T3 would explain my symptoms, but it seems to be mid-range so no conversion problem. GP will not increase levo even by 25ug because my TSH is already very low. I worry that if Im diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, that will just give them a chance to say: “nothing more we can do”. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
