Went to discuss my latest blood results this morning,it's my third doctor in 5 months and was hoping he would be different. I'm taking 200mcg levothyroxine every morning. I feel lethargic,cold all the time,muscle and joint pain and generally miserable. Before I was told I was hypothroid I was working full time and had three older boys at home. Had horses and had lots of energy,never sat down.
Now I have no energy,no enthusiasm,no interest in house work. Tell myself tomorrow will be the day when I blitz the house but when I get up next day I feel awful and just want to sit down.
Gp tested cholesterol,folic acid,iron,B12 and estrogen which were all in the reference ranges.
My thyroid results are:
Serum free T4 18.5(11.0-23.0)
Serum TSH 2.4(0.27-4.5)
Serum free T3 3.06(3.1-6.8)
Was told that he does not take into account any T3 results and has been told to go on TSH only.
Any tips you lovely people.
