Well just got my latest blood test result – what a surprise... TSH 1.69! (last 5.12).
Does this indicate I’m doing something right? Or have I got someone else's result by mistake? (No medication with half a thyroid, 9.30am test whilst feeling rotten).
OK What’s changed since last year?
I do feel better on the aches & pains front (supplementing with Vit D3) relief.
And I feel less tired and brighter too (have to use week-ends to catch up 'tho).
I’ve gone hippy, avoiding all processed food (esp bread/cereals etc.) eggs, butter, fish, meat & veg fine; avoiding chemicals too - except Epson salts in bath!
I’ve also learnt at 52, I can say ‘no’.(avoiding stress).
BUT What’s still wrong? (I could see it as back to square one).
I still am really cold, sometimes palpitation jitters & tremor (not the cold sort) brain foggy and new symptoms dry skin on face & shins, & fine thin hair (never had these before so looking at B12/ferritin next).
Still no sense of smell/taste and had 2 sinus colds plus a bug in 3 weeks! (none for a year then 3 come at once! Like a bus?).
However I will take this as good news (forever optimist!) but as I felt dreadful I was sure test would be over 5 as usual this time of year – hence psyched myself up to ask a trial of Levo (per article on my previous blog).
Am I better? Dunno, in 2 minds, as usual.....
Meanwhile shall I have the Shropshire blue or the Brie (K2) ?...... Easy, both!
Ah well, it’s nearly Easter and the weather MUST get better! Cheers!
