I have been feeling very exhausted, not the usual Hashimotos fatigue but instead completely run down, breathless, very dark circles under eyes and total lack of energy. This has been going on for years to be honest despite introduction of t4 and t3 and thyroid results being normal now. The medication does help overall but this deep fatigue and exhaustion has just never gone away. I’m 31, I have a very busy and stressful job that I need to be on the back every day and I just can’t shake this, it’s getting harder and harder to manage and I have even been taking some time off despite how much that is going to hinder me at work, plus I really can’t be taking time off so that can’t continue.
My husband and I have wanted to start a family for so long now but I just don’t know how we can take that step with how terrible I feel all the time.
I should note I also have soooooo many food sensitivities so I basically can only eat foods as part of the AIP protocol and even some of those I can’t have. I do spread out my eating regularly throughout the day and ensure I eat every 3 hours. Plenty of veg, meat and good fats so I don’t think diet is a factor here.
I had bloods done last week, my endo says all is fine and I don’t see anything glaringly obvious.
I wondered if someone could take a look to see if I am missing something that would explain these symptoms and how I can rectify things? Thanks in advance.

I also have a full blood count which I can post if needs be but everything is showing in normal range. But let me know if that is required.
I have just noticed these results don’t include my t3 reading so I will contact my endo and post this once I have a note if it.
I would really appreciate any help in the meantime in regards to any other areas which could be causing these symptoms. Wether it be vitamins or minerals even.
Also is anyone aware what your folate level should be if you have Hashimotos and are considering pregnancy?
Many thanks, really appreciated.
