I’ve just been to my GP to get the results from my blood test which was taken just before my original post. Unfortunately, there is only a TSH of 1.01 (0.3 – 5.5) result. No T3 or T4. I’m guessing that the helpful people who replied to my original post will suggest that I ask for a T3 and T4 test, and also a B12 and folate test as well. I’ve made an appointment for next Friday (13th) (earliest I could get) and ask for them.
I’ll also tell the doctor that I’ve done Dr. Myhill’s Burp test and give the results (first time I gave up timing after 5 minutes and the seconds time I took 4 minutes to burp), and ask if my problem could be Low Stomach Acid.
In the mean time I’ve stopped taking the Ranitidine and started taking Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (up to ¾ tea spoon full) in OJ before each meal. A previous doctor I saw told me to stop eating big meals and go with ‘a little and often’.
I’m still cold and lethargic and burping all the time. Gaviscon helps for about half an hour.
Any other suggestions gratefully received.
