I am new on here and am rather confused as to what my TSH should actually be. My latest test result on 13th February 2013 was:
Serum TSH level - (FJA1622) was 0.33 mu/L where the range is 0.30 - 6.00 mu/L. Have been told that level is normal, and no action is needed.
Blood test was taken approx 3 hours after taking my daily dose of 175 mcg of levothyroxine.
I had a total thyroidectomy in 2003 due to a multi-nodular goitre, saw an Endocrinologist once shortly after my op, and have not seen once since.
Is this level of 0.33 ok or do I need to take action? Since my op, I can honestly say that I have never felt 100%. I am:
Unable to lose weight.
Shattered most of the time
Have depression and anxiety
Hot flushes have gone worse
High blood pressure gone worse....today nurse took and is 170/107 so have to go on a 24hr monitor.
Have leg cramps
Very dry skin
And the list goes on.
As I am really in the dark and confused about whether or not all my problems are hypothyroidism related, any help/advice from other members is very much appreciated.
