What do my thyroid
function tests mean?
Serum free T4 level (XaERr) ~ Result 13.1 pmo/L (9.0 - 19.1)
Serum TSH level (XaELV) ~ Result 5.1 mu/L (0.35 - 4.95)
Combined total Vitamin D2 and D3 level (XaXhT) ~ Result 55 nmol/L
I sleep 16+ hours a day, struggle to concentrate, have tingles in my arms & hands, sometimes my lower legs too. Headaches, blurred vision (eye sight test was fine) unexplained weight gain of approx 20lbs over 12 months. General feeling of weakness all over, some body / muscle aches (lower back, neck) unable to do simple chores / go out due to weakness & unwell feeling. Cold feet. Low body temperature (done first thing in the mornings) of between 34.4 & 36.3 (but no shivering, like I've became accustomed to the cold) really bad memory, brain fog.... I feel awful & have been this way for maybe 18 months. Last year (12 months ago) I had swine flu, laryngitis
all at the same time needing time in hospital & emergency visits from my GP. I've had the flu jab today after my doctor put me in the high priority group. My emotions are everywhere, my GP gave me anti depressants 10 months ago, they've been doubled in dosage 4 months ago & I still don't feel better. I have no anxiety.
I'd just like to feel better now :(
I'm 39, female, on 40mg citalopram, 5ft 7", otherwise healthy.
