This thyroid thing is horrible. Ive been experiencing hypothyroid symptoms for the past 5 or more years and everytime i get a blood test, tsh comes out normal. This year when my symptoms got 'magnified' and i was down in rut i got tested again and my tsh was slsightly elevated and docs put me on levothyroxine.
What i mean about my symptoms getting magnified is From moderate weight gain to a 31 lbs increase in less than a year From forgetfulness to the point my hubby thought i had alzeihmers From dry skin to extremely dry skin where the doc prescribed prescription ointment From dry brittle nails to the point that my nails dont even grow anymore From fatigue to scream fatigue where i feltjuststanding up was a challenge From cold intolerance to the point i would be shivering in summer @ 100+ F weather And the list goes on.
Do keep it checked and my suggestion is find a doctor who will respond to your symptoms and not just rely on tsh level.
Good luck with everything. Im here to spport you! 1538 days ago
