I recently (last month) had my synthroid dosage changed (from 56 to 75). Last week, I experienced some chest pain, dizziness, shakiness and tingling in my arms and legs. I called my doctor, and she told me to go to the ER. I did. I had a chest x-ray and some blood drawn. The x-ray came out normal and here are the results of my blood tests: TSH = 1.96, total T4 = 6.2, thyrxne uptk = 37, and thyrox index = 2.3 (I copied this directly from the lab sheet, so I'm not exactly sure what the last two are). I called my doc and she said that my total T3 = 92. She says they're all in the "normal" range, and that my symptoms don't have anything to do with the increase in synthroid...and she passed me along to another doctor (big surprise there). I feel better now, but not 100%. Can someone explain these #'s to me? Could these symptoms just be from stress? They came on pretty quickly...and now I feel like I have a cold or something. Grrrrr...I'm so frustrated!
