Post MD doubts Thyroid

I met with my MD today who said my thyroid is not the problem and thinks the fatigue and lightheadedness, (brain fog), is due to my heart disease or the medication I take for it. He did change my heart meds to Toprol 25mg.
He also said the antibodies is normal. I am currently taking 88mcg Synthroid. My latest labs:

Free T4 = 1.01 (.071 - 1.85)
TSH = 1.93 (.032 - 5.00)

Thyroid Perox Ab = 26.4 H Range <2.0
Anti= TPO Antibodies

I see my endo next Monday and I hope she can do something to relieve my symptoms. The last visit she mentioned trying the Cytomel therapy.
I appreciate any observations or comments. Thanks
Keep moving, it makes it harder for the undertaker to catch you. Don

Don't hold out too much hope on the doctors. The doctors don't treat symptoms of patients, but treat lab sheets.
