I asked the doctors to check my thyroid because even though I am more active than 12 months ago, I have put on 1.5 stone and it's hard to shift, even earring 1000 calories a day. I'm only 5'2" and putting this much on is a lot for a little person.
For the past 12 months I have been developing more aches and pains. Firstly both shoulders, then may feet felt stuff and achy, an ache in my grown (tendon?), then diagnosed with carpal tunnel, then tennis elbow, 3 weeks ago I developed policemans heel. I am 46 and walk between 2.5-3.5 miles a day. I feel I shouldn't be aching
My heart rate can dip to 45, I'm tired but not exhausted, my hands and feet are always cold, I sometimes loose hair, my periods were awful but I underwent a procedure to clean my womb and now they are non existent with the coil fitted.
I've had blood tests - all normal
My free T4 is 13.3pmol/L lab range 10 - 22
TSH level is 1.2mU/L lab range 0.1 - 4
No T3 test
Can anyone tell me what you think, should I ask for anymore tests, or just start walking more!
