I am newbie. I live in France; not speaking native French. I have hashimoto disease identified end of June 2017 with following figures;
Anti thyroglobulie 326 UI/mL (<115)
Anti thyperoydase 12UI/mL (<34)
T3 free 0.29ng/dl (0.23-0.42)
T4 free: 0.99ng/dl (0.90-1.76)
TSH: 7.98mUI/ml (0.55-4.78)
Hemoglobine 13.6 g/dl (12.5-15.5)
I started medical treatment with levothroxine 75mg T4 end of July 2017.
After 3 weeks of treatment I have following figures:
TSH: 1.13 mUI/ml (0.55-4.78)
Hemoglobine 12.9 g/dl (12.5-15.5)
My symptoms has been improved a lot especially fatigue, dizziness, bad digestion. However, I still have a lot of symptoms; hand swollen, bad digestion, bloating, chest pain and since last week stomach pain. The pain is not strong or disturbing, but its just worrying me a lot!
I am also worried that my hemoglobine has decreased even though I have started the medication and I paid a lot of attention to my nutrition.
This disease made me extremely anxious about my help; this is not real me at all.
I was wondering if this type of pain /symptoms are normal. My endocrinologist says hypothyroidism may cause re-flux, but having TSH lowered to this level, the symptoms I have should be due to other reasons: pathological, food intolerance etc.
I will go and see my GP this week after having new TSH T3/T4 measurement.
Could some one tell me if swallowing of hands, chest/stomach pain are normal symptoms of hashimoto /hypothyroid? I will appreciate suggestions and advises.
Thank you good people!
