Confused by my results...
Hello forum members!
I have been hypothryoid for two years, but was not taking my medications daily until February of this year. I was on 75 mcg, then prior to my test (one week before) switched up to 100 mcg (which I was told was where I needed to be). I've been continuing on the 100 mcg since May and then for last 2 days 125 mcg. I think i feel worse on this dose.
I have previously been told my TSH was 'sky high' by my ever so vague doctor.
Today I rang in to find out the exact numbers for recent tests and was told:
TSH = 1.67
T4 = 17
I asked for T3 -they said no results available. I also asked whether the T4 was total T4 or free T4, they said it did not indicate this on the test. I am going to my GP now to get a print out of all the thyroid tests I have ever had done....
Would someone please let me know what the above means even vaguely? I know I need to find out the reference ranges too.
I still feel awful. I had 4 weeks of feeling GREAT, then have gone back into an exhausted-constipated-brain fog. Awful. Symptoms include - continued rapid weight gain, thirst, muscle ache, brain fog, exhaustion. I have recently read that overmedication can cause these symptoms...any thoughts?
Please kindly advise - thanks so much
