    What are your numbers?

    So I'm trying to put my finger on this. I keep getting told by docs that my numbers are within range and even though I have several classic hypothyroid symptoms (including being diagnosed Hashi and having hypthyroidism in the family) they insist that whatever is ailing me it is not endocrine or metabolic related. Then I go on this board and other boards and folks tell me that they would be wiped out if they had my numbers. So I'll share mine if you share yours.
    My last test done was last week: TSH 2.33 and Free T4 1.0 (range 0.8 - 1.8) No Free T3 was done.
    The test previous to that was TSH 2.07 Free T4 1.2 (same range as above) Free T3 2.5 (range 2.3-4.2). This test was done with me being on a 25mg dose of Levothyroxine for 5 weeks. The most recent test was me off of it for 3 days (doc took me off b/c he didn't think I needed it).

    So how many of you would feel crappy if you had my numbers?

    FREE T3 2.71 Range 2.77-5.27
    FREE T4 0.79 Range 0.58-1.65
    TSH 0.110 Range 0.400-5.800
    T3, REVERSE 12 Range 11-32

    My FT3 was from November, I had new labs done today , just waiting on results! I do feel like crap My FT4 was done 2-9-13, and same with the TSH. My RT3 was done 11-24-12. I am on my fourth Endo too......... I really hope she gets me feeling better!!! VERY SOON!! I felt so wonderful after I had my daughter last March, and then was put back on anti-thyroid in June of 2012, because of my low TSH......... it makes me furious these thyroid Dr.'s don't know what they're doing!! Now my right eye is swollen and my face is all broke out, I am tired, achy, brain fog, depression, irritated all the time, anxiety about everything I want to feel great again, I have four daughters to take care of and my hubby, who has COPD. I have a great sense of humor though thank-goodness!! My girls and husband make it better for me too! I will beat this Graves Disease!! I have had it 2 years now and I am 34.

    Re: What are your numbers?

    I'm in the same boat as you are. Diagnosed Hashimoto's, inflammation shows on an ultrasound. An endo even told me if I went over 3 she's treat me. Of course, now that I'm over 3, it's still not good enough. She says it has to be over 3 multiple times.

    I actually had a doctor who was willing to give me synthetic replacement, but said I could talk to another endo who would use Armour. Of course, the endo said I didn't need it...

    For now, I'm getting them (slowly, very slowly) to test pretty much ALL of my hormones and other things.

    7/09- 3.16 (0.1-5.5)
    10/12- 2.42 (0.2-4.2)
    11/12- 2.22 (0.2-4.2)
    12/12- 2.03 (0.1-5.5)
    1/13- 2.98 (0.1-5.5)
    2/13- 3.09 (0.1-5.5)

    10/12- 0.92 (0.78-2.11)
    11/12- 0.87 (0.78-2.11)
    12/12- 0.8 (0.8-1.7)
    1/13- 0.9 (0.8-1.7)

    10/12- 2.72 (2.3-6.9)
    11/12- 3.09 (2.3-6.9)
