: well i got my third tsh done today. it is 7.44, the last one was 7.5 the one before that was 8.0. i was hoping that is would come down even more but it didn't so i guess it is going to stay that way for a while. the thing is that i don't feel bad at all! i have insomnia, some muscle tension, like my muscle's tightening up on me but i don't know if it's just anxiety or stress or what. i have some restlessness too, but i don't know how much is perimenopause and how much is thyroid. my antibodies are sky high but have been for years now and my tsh has always been at about 4.0 and below 5.5 until about two months ago. so why do i feel fine? my dr. is letting me decide when to start the synthroid, and i don't know when i will. any advise?

How you feel is a major part of it and it's good that you feel good, but are you feeling rested after a good nights sleep? Do you have vivid dreams and are you remembering most of your dreams more than usual? I'm asking this, because this is the problem I'm having and I read that it's because when we are hypo, we cannot get into a deep sleep. we never get past the (REM) dreaming stage, so don't feel rested.
If so, you should really start that synthroid soon
good luck
