Low range Free T4 and TSH... Hypothyroid??
Some symptoms i have are..
dry straw-like hair, frizzy, hard to wash and comb
abnormal hair loss, no bald spots but have to clean out drain when shower and hair pulls out of ends of my hair with like 20 pieces of hair in one strand
painful bottoms of feet cant hardly stand
weak legs cant hardly walk and slow way down with slight incline
painful joints, popping joints
extreme anxiety that causes neuropathy like poor circulation to feet, tingling numbness in legs feet hands, extreme teeth clenching, high heart rate, chest pain, burning sensations all over, cold feet, burning red toes, trembling, etc
memory loss, confusion, blurry vision, cant think or concentrate, foggy mind
narcolepsy occasionally, sleep disturbance, insomnia
profuse sweating; armpits, groin, under breasts, scalp, feet
waxy greasy skin on face and shoulders
acne; face neck, back, shoulders, chest, scalp
vaginal dryness burning odor
dry mouth and eyes
intolerance to exercise because of joint pain and muscle weakness and pain,
cant climb stairs, exhausted
moods, irritability, rage, on edge, cant tolerate noise
carpal tunnel pain sometimes
these are most of them. doctors say i do not have a thyroid problem because labs are always "normal." is it unlikely that hypothyroidism is the cause of most of my symptoms?? thank you for your help. here was my labs:
Free T4 0.77 (0.7-1.4)
TSH 1.27 (0.6-5.3)
Free T3 3.1 (2.3-4.2)
Ive had labs several times and they are usually about the same but one other time the Free T4 was .7 Flagged "LOW" and TSH was .9 with same ranges.
