I’ve been experiencing increased tiredness, forgetfulness, erratic sleep pattern and my hair is noticeably thinner. Which has made me concerned about my thyroid, as my symptoms seem similar to hypothyroidism.
I’m on seroquel, which could also be causing/ exacerbating these problems. I’ve read that seroquel can cause thyroid problems too. I’m hoping to be tapering off this soon.
I had a blood test in 2018, where they checked my thyroid. At the time I was told everything was fine. But since experiencing these symptoms, which have got worse over time, I thought I’d recheck my blood test.
These are the results;
Free T4 level 10.2 pmol/L [7 - 20]
TSH level 10.14 miu/L [0.35 - 5]
The Doctor has assessed these results as ‘satisfactory, no further action’. Am I right to be concerned that my TSH levels are outside the normal range?
I posted on another hypothyroidism forum and the consensus seems that my blood test showed that my TSH level was very high.
I feel quite upset that this wasn’t picked up on four years ago. I blindly trusted the doctor and now feel very let down.
I’ve booked another blood test and will be seeing a doctor this week too. In the mean time, I wondered what you knowledgeable people thought about my results?
Thank you for taking the time.
