Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear of your Thyroid problem. Being sick with a viral infection could cause a slight change in your TSH level. Do you have Thyroid disease that is being treated with Levothyroxine or other medication? What symptoms do you have in regard to your Thyroid?
What was the TSH level? It is possible for TSH to vary, if there is a Thyroid problem, but not by much unless medication is involved.
These numbers are not indicative of Thyroid disease (TSH values normal 0.45-4.5 in most labs). Free T4 , normal is up to 1.4 in most labs. May I suggest you discuss with your doctor the chance of your symptoms being caused by an adrenal or pituitary problem and that a work up be done. These can be evaluated with blood tests, ultrasound and MRI.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
