My health really hasnt been great this year, I switched from levothyroxine to NDT which has definitely helped a little but I just havent felt optimised all year. Most recently I have had 2 colds in a month, the first was fine, I took it easy and was better in 5 days, the 2nd I have had for 2 weeks. The cold symptoms have gone but I am still sinusy with a sore throat on and off, headachey and feeling absolutely exhausted, its getting me down, I have barely left the house in 2 weeks and get out of breath and shaky just walking up the stairs.
My last blood tests were done nearly 7 weeks ago, but I only changed up my NDT 10 days ago to 2 grains per day (one around 6am and one at 12noon) as I think I was under medicating (last blood tests tsh level was 5 point something even though I was feeling much better than on levo)
I have also been taking really high dose of B1 and B12 for nearly a week now as I read that might help with energy levels but it hasn't made a difference.
I am thinking of stopping the B vits today as I heard it can interfere with thyroid blood tests and then getting my bloods done Tue/Weds next week.
My question is, do you think its wise to get my bloods done when I'm feeling under the weather or should I just keep taking the B vits for another week and get my bloods done the week after.
I'm not sure if the illness is lingering because I'm under medicated or for a different reason! The blood tests are expensive so I dont want to get them done if its going to be a waste of time.
