So lately I've been exhausted. Not just exhausted. EXHAUSTED. I tweeted the other day how a trip to Target just wiped me out & jokingly stated how I was going to take a 3+ hour nap. Well, it turned out to be a 5 hour nap & I only woke up because Chris woke me up. I just haven't had the energy for much of anything lately. Well I found out why today.
So, going through my last few labs they looked like this:
- T4 - 12.0 High (Normal Range 4.9-11.7)
- TSH - 0.192 Low (Normal Range 0.400-5.000)
- TSH - 1.347 In Range
- T3 - 207 High (Normal Range 75-165)
- Free T3 - 4.8 High (Normal Range 1.7-3.7)
- TSH - 0.157 Low
So I changed my endocrinologist around the last blood test & hadn't had another one done until March 3rd. I was actually going to wait until a week later, but I had just been feeling so crappy that my primary suggested to get it done right away.
- TSH - 9.38 OMG WAY TOO HIGH!
So that answers my question as to why I have been insanely fatigued and sleeping like a bear that woke up way too early from hibernation lately. *sigh* The T4 was off also but I forgot to get a copy of the lab because I really had my answer with the TSH being that high. I don't think it has ever been that high before & I am surprised at the dramatic increase!
So my Armour is getting upped to 120mg & I have to have blood work again in 6-8 weeks. We also tried to do a test for my adrenals but for some reason they couldn't test the sample they received so I have to have that redone. They also want me to test my blood sugar to see if it's too low at times. I have been tested for diabetes before & those came back negative so I think they are looking for hypoglycemia now. I don't really know. All I know is that my body is trying to kill me.
Thyroid, I know you no longer exist in me but I HATE YOU! :(
