Hello friends. Feeling awful again and frustrated. Pretty sure my TSH is a worthless test in my situation. My last anti TPO was over 1000 and I had TSI at 54%. These were drawn on 01-23-13.
03-14-2012 approx 15 weeks on 75mcg Tirosint
TSH 2.8 range 0.3-4.8
FT4 0.9 range 0.8-1.5
01-23-2013 approx 8 weeks on 75mcg tirosint
TSH < 0.1 range 0.3-4.8
FT4 1.1 range 0.8-1.5
FT3 3.5 range 2.0-4.4
11-21-2012 at this time was on 88mcg Tirosint for approx 6 weeks
TSH <0.1 same ranges as above
08-22-12 at this time was on 25mcg synthroid M-F and 50mcg on weekend
FT4 1.0 same ranges as above
06-08-12 25mcg levothyroxine daily
FT3 3.0 same ranges as above
And finally in may 2012, at diagnosis, no meds, TSH 6.87
I have been riddled with symptoms at all ranges but I suppose the one that bothers me most is that I have an extremely irregular heart rhythm. Palps all day every day, regardless of taking Metoprolol. At first the metoprolol helped, but not much anymore. My rate is in the 70's at times and in the same day, it can have periods of going up to 90's-110 resting. Sometimes the palps are so frequent that I get lightheaded. Oh, and the intense anxiety and panic attacks are returning. I love this one...not. I have anxiety and panic BECAUSE my hormones are whack and because my heart is crazy, not the other way around. I don't have an irregular heart rate because I'm an anxious person. My doctor knows this. I have had several tests already but GP is making me go to cardiologist on April 5th.
I know cardiologist will probably result in a clean slate for my heart. I'm 36, without many risk factors for heart disease. I know deep down that it's probably the Hashi's process at work and the TSI thrown in there makes things skewed. It seems to me that my TSH does not correlate anymore with the feedback loop. I'm just so tired of being so sick all the time and my life is on hold. I barely make it through work and other than that, I don't do anything except go to the doctor. I have 3 kids. This sucks.
