Last week I had a follow up blood test after general bloods showed 6 weeks elevated TSH and low T4
TSH - 16.45 (0.3 - 4.2)
T4 - 7.6 (12 - 22)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody 15iu/ml (0 - 34) negative
TSH - 6.66 (0.3 - 4.2)
T4 - 11.3 (12 - 22)
I originally went to the drs with fatigue, anxiety and stubborn weight gain.
I’ve been put on Levothyroxine 25mg for 8 weeks with the view I may come off it when I go back in 8 weeks. Does this happen? I currently feel dreadful, I don’t feel safe driving as I’m so tired and I have 3 young children to look after!
Does anyone have experience on why my levels have changed so much in 6 weeks? Is this typical? My dr was perplexed as my antibodies came back negative.
Is there anything else I can do to help myself. I ran a half marathon earlier this year, I exercised regularly but now I’m struggling to tie my laces let alone run!
Looking back in my notes from years ago my TSH was always around 4 but reported as normal
Thanks for any advice
