    High reverse T3

    I have had shooting pains, extreme joint cracking, twitching of all my muscles for months. I was "clincally" just dx with lyme. One of my tests came back abnormal--reverse high T3. What does this mean? Could my symptoms be due to this?

    This means that you're not converting your T4 to T3 efficiently. Did you have a full thyroid panel done? If so could you post your results here together with the ranges.

    'Fine' isnt really an answer If you've got the results please post them here and we'll be able to advise if they are 'optimum' and not just within 'normal'. With high reverse T3 I VERY much doubt that they are fine Chances are your FT3 is well below optimum.
