Possible to be hypothyroid with normal test results?
Hi! I'm new here and would appreciate any advice you guys have. I've been experiencing extreme tiredness for months now (I'd say almost a yr at this point although it's gotten dramatically worse in the last 6 months). No matter how much sleep I get, I still wake up tired. Among other symptoms, my hand/feet are always cold, my hair is falling out, no sex drive, dizziness when I first get up. In July, I developed neck/shoulder pain. I've also had the distinct impression that the front of my neck looks bigger...not goiterish...just kind of swollen. I finally saw my dr (actually an LNP) the other week and she ran some thyroid tests (along with the normal blood tests). My results came back as follows:
Thyroxine 9.3 (4.5 - 14.0)
T Uptake 33.0 (31.0 - 39.0)
Ultra TSH .992 (0.4 - 4.0)
FTI 3.1 (2.0 - 4.0)
She said everything looked good from these results. Of the other results, she only commented on my vitamin D level coming back low so she wants to treat that. 27.5 (32 - 100) I guess I'm having trouble believing that all my symptoms are a result of low vit D as she is telling. Plus I'm annoyed because she thought for sure it was my thyroid based on my symptoms but when the tests results came back normal, she just totally discounted all my symptoms..to the point that she didn't even call to tell me the results of the tests. She assumed since they were normal there was no point in discussing it. She had someone else call me about the vitamin D result. I had to go to the office to demand a copy of my test results, otherwise she would have never given them to me.
I also noticed 2 other results out of range:
Eosinophil 7.2 (0 - 6)
WBC 3.5 (4.5 - 11)
Not sure if they mean anything or not.
Does anyone know if the thyroid results really mean that my thyroid is okay? and if so, what else might be going on to cause my symptoms? Thanks in advance for you help.
Also, I've been charting my bbt and have noticed that my temps average 96.8. Anyone know if this is significant?
