I have been dealing with what is extreme fatigue for me. Very tired always wanting to nap but at same time not really able to sleep at night. Went in to my GP to have my blood work done bc it hadn't been checked since my endocrinologist changed my last synthroid dose (dropped from 250 mcg 6 days/week to 200mcg daily). I have been really lax about going back to get the levels checked and have really been struggling with energy/fatigue lately and it was to the point where I haven't been this exhausted since BEFORE I was diagnosed 4 yrs ago. My GP called the other day and said my TSH came back normal and that my Vit. D was a little lowish and to do 1000mg over the counter vit d. Luckily I asked for the results to be sent to me.
I was shocked when I opened the results today!!! I am NOT suppressed and while my TSH is in "normal" range it is NOT where it should be for someone with a cancer history. I'm very angry. Not only that, they didn't do the full thyroid panel like I asked (And I did take it the last set of blood work that I had done) so it feels like a wasted appointment.
In January my results were:
TSH: 0.037 (low)
Free T3: 3.0 (normal)
Free T4: 1.83 (high)
Vit D: 22
There were other tests done in Jan but those are most relevant.
My results from a week and a half ago:
TSH: 1.66!!!!! no wonder I feel like crap!
Vit D: 30
Argh! other than calling Endocrinologist tomorrow Idk what to do. at least now I know why I've been feeling so bad. Having an ultrasound on Aug 1 for follow up and need to see Endo after that but may have to go in to see Endo before then bc of these results...Idk.
