Iv been diagnosed hypo Hashimotos since 2009. I have managed it pretty well since then, but seem to be going through a bad patch.
I have always felt at my best when my TSH is right down at around 0.05 and my T4 at the edge of upper level around 19.
Had the usual tiredness symptoms and feeling generally low in January and my tsh came back at 1.02 and my T4 at 18, the doctor wasn’t prepared to up my Levo. Just got new bloods back today and my TSH is at 5.37 and my T4 at 12.5.
I haven’t felt this exhausted since I was diagnosed, it’s constant. Iv got back pain, my hair is falling out, the brain fog is unreal, Iv got heart palpitations, the carpel tunnel keeps me awake and all I want to do is sleep. I’m freezing cold and we’re in the middle of a heat wave!
I feel like my doctor will say there’s nothing wrong and I need to get on with it, am I being dramatic saying that my TSH is too high? And T4 too low? Has anyone else been this symptomatic around these levels? Many thanks x
