I'm 53, with a mother and niece who have both been diagnosed with under active thyroid. I have a number of health issues and have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which I understand can have a similar pattern of symptoms to hypothyroidism?? Anyway, my free t4 has been right on the lower edge of the normal range the last 2 blood tests I have had (12.2, 12.1) Everything else is normal. However I am wondering about my TSH. Over the last 5 years it has steadily increased from a previously stable 2.4 (ish) to 2.7 in 2014, then 2 years later 3.2, then another 2 years later 3.8. Is this suggestive of a slow slide into hypothyroidism? If so, could it explain my current health issues or is it unlikely that I could be symptomatic at these levels? Any thoughts would be really appreciated.
