Hi everyone, I am new to forum and I hope to get some answers as to why I am still not feeling better.
I am newly diagnosed hypothyroid though my results have been going up and down for a number of years prior to diagnosis. I was diagnosed in October 2017. I went to GP with symptoms of sweats, pins and needles, loss of circulation, hair falling out, dry skin, coldness to skin, tiredness, tiredness, low stamina, constant rumbling in ears, constipation, heavy and painful periods, low libido, twitching in leg muscles, bloating.
So my levels when first tested for hypothyroidism were TSH 50.6 (0.2 - 4.2) FT4 10.4 (12 - 22) and I was started on Levothyroxine 50mcg straight away. I had one day where I actually felt recovered, now very rarely do I feel a hundred per cent.
My new bloods are now TSH 6.7 (0.2 - 4.2) FT4 14.2 (12 - 22) FT3 3.5 (3.1 - 6.8) TPO ANTIBODY 856.40 (<34)
Also had vitamins and minerals checked in December, they are FERRITIN 32 (30 - 400) FOLATE 1.9 (2.5 - 19.5) VITAMIN B12 233 (190 - 900) VITAMIN D (25 OH) 25.3 (25 - 50 VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY. SUPPLEMENTATION IS INDICATED) I also have deranged fertility hormone levels, suggesting polycystic ovaries syndrome which is in the family history. I also have low DHEA 2.3 (2.7 - 7.5)
I take 800iu D3 and 210mg ferrous fumarate. Any idea when I will feel completely better please?
