Im wondering if my problem is TOTALLY due to lack of vitamin D3.
I have loads of symptoms:
carple tunnel syndrome
plantar fasciitis (hence the name flatfeet)
pins and needles and numb toes
a good forgettery
average morning body temp 36.3
feeling 101 years old with no energy.
Both of my sisters have hypo (I think my mum had also, but was misdiagnosed)
But I had a tsh test done at the doc which came back "normal" (1.9 range 0.35-4.5) taken at 10.30am)
although my cholesterol, serum creatinine and ESR were all raised
(not sure why tests are done as doc never picked up on these)
So 2 weeks later I got a private test done: (8.30am)
(T4) 98 nmol/L 59 - 154
T S H 3.57 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE 16.5 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 4.9 pmol/L 3.1 - 6.8
Thyroglobulin Antibody 15.8 IU/mL 0-115(Negative)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies <5.0 IU/mL <34 (Negative)
I have recently taken approximatley 6 normal vit d tabs and felt much better, less nauseaus and a little more energy, and having seen these links;
(ok its all a bit technical and I dont fully understand)
I am wondering if D3 could be my total problem or just part of it, also if i take thyroxine when not having a thyroid problem, would it do me any harm ?
I would be greatful and hopefully less confused if anyone has any thoughts on this,
Many thanks guys
