Help needed-question for Midwest & MKG

Do you have any suggestions as to why the T4 levels would drop from 22.4 (68.1%) to 19.3 (51.1%) or what I could do to bring it back up. I felt better when the levels were higher. I havenít changed anything that I'm aware off and have been consistent with vitamins, minerals, omega, exercise etc. The only thing I've noticed is at times my throat is sore, but not enough to bother me but just enough so that I know it's there. (upper part of throat)

When I mentioned the lower T4, doctor said, you are still in the normal range. Iíve asked for a referral to Endocrinologist again and she has agreed to make a referral, but the waiting list for an appointment is a year. Is there another specialist that would be helpful? My doctor suggested we try the home sleep apnea test, as the clinic wait time is well over a year. However, she doesnít think this is the problem, but will rule it out. I also don't think this is the problem, I don't wake up gasping, startled, nothing like that. Iím still having a very difficult time with sleep, waking up repeatly at night and never refreshed in the morning, always tired. I've been taking zopiclone nightly, for the past couple of months and still wake up a few times a night - and this is a good night.
