I had a total thyroidectomy in 2002. I'm currently on 88 mcg. of levoxyl. I just had TSH checked and was told it was 4.99. Is that normal? The doctor said it was. It seems like the normal range for TSH is a wide one (.5 - 6).
I have a lot of muscle weakness/aches/pains, especially in my legs and back. Also, I'm extremely tired and have a hard time working an 8 hr. day. My profession is Administrative Assistant/Office Manager. I take dosage of 2500 of B12 every day and take Vitamin D, Magnesium and Calcium. I also have anxiety and panic attacks. I'm under a lot of stress now because I've been laid off since February. I'm worried about finances like everyone else.
Is there any other kind of medication or vitamins that would help with muscle weakness, pain and low energy? Should I have adrenals checked?
