Just a bit of background about me first.. I'm 21 male and have been suffering from hypothyroidism for about 2 and a half years now. Out of those 2 and a half years a year and half I went untreated, as the GP said I was just suffering from depression. At the time I was told I was borderline hypothyroid but I shouldn't be feeling this bad so they just passed me off as I was depressed. I'm a very sporty outgoing person but this has just completely killed me off, zero energy, weight gain(use to be very lean as I'm into weightlifting, now very fat), coldness, brain fog, joint pain, etc etc.. all the hypothyroidism signs.
Now this is where I'm confused at; basically, I've been on t4 nearly a year now and I haven't improved at all, if anything gotten worse. Cannot even work now, been out of work a year, barely seeing friends.. everything is just miserable.
I'm on 75mcg of levothyroxine(quite small dosage) and my tsh is 0.26 and t4 26. So my tag is slightly under the range and t4 slightly over, basically saying I'm slightly hyperthyroid. However, my t3 did not get tested recently.
This is what I'm confused about, I had suspicion I was having conversion problems.. however when I was on 50mcg thyroxine my t3 was tested (the only time is has been tested) and that came back around 5.8.. so quite in the high range. This was around 6/7 months ago.. so that could have changed.. did ask for my t3 to be tested again but the gp didn't bother.
Sorry for the long winded post, I'm just a bit all over the place and very confused about it all. Just feels like there's never going to be an end of me feeling rubbish and I'm going to just have to deal feeling like this for the rest of my life.
