    Question Thyroid Issues? Normal labs...please help

    I would really appreciate help in understanding my lab results.

    TSH"........0.987. Normal.......0.450-4.5
    Thyroxine T4...6.8. Normal.......4.5-12.0
    T3 Uptake.....39. Normal.......24-39
    Free Thyroxine Index..2.7. Normal....1.2-4.9

    I finally found a Dr. that agrees I do have Thyroid problems and lots of symptoms (cold hands and feet, dry skin, depressed, can't lose weight, thinning hair, no sex drive, had sleep problems for many years which has gotten better recently, etc.) as you can see I am in the range for each test, but am at the low end for everything but T3 Uptake which I am at the high end.

    She has me on three different Thyroid stimulating supplements and I have more energy and depression is gone. I just want to understand what is going on.

    I was put on bioidentical hormones a few years ago thinking my symptoms were just my hormones. Now I am thinking it may of been my Thyroid and Adrenals all along.

    I am also having some pretty severe shoulder pain. Could this also be related to Thyroid?
