I am new. I feel like giving up. I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2012 and I take 150mcg Levothyroxine. My GP orders blood tests for all sorts of things but I get no call back so I must be in perfect health. I will just keep taking my Levothyroxine like my endo has instructed me to and get on with my life despite my debilitating symptoms, please see below list:
Cramps in legs
Periods draining the life out of me
Toes feeling numb
Nails looking flaky and pink nail plates splitting
I don't expect anyone to reply. I don't expect anyone to relate to me either. I am just writing to say that I feel alone and I probably am alone. I also have iron deficiency which is untreated, folate deficiency, low B12 and vitamin D deficiency.
The GP receptionist says my TSH is over range but my thyroid hormones are normal which is what the GPs go by.
TSH 4.88 (0.2 - 4.2)
Free T4 14.8 (12 - 22)
Free T3 3.4 (3.1 - 6.8)
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies 904.5 (<34)
Thyroglobulin antibodies 4000 (<115)
Ferritin 22 (15 - 150)
Folate 2.1 (2.5 - 19.5)
Vitamin B12 233 (190 - 900)
Vitamin D 60.2 (50 - 75 suboptimal. Advise on safe sun exposure and diet)
Iron stopped in 2016, folic acid started Jan 2018, B12 started Jan 2018, vitamin D 9000IU with K2-MK7 (oral spray) started Sep 2017.
