Exactly a year ago I suffered from twitching. Started in forearm went to calf then the other then in every conceivable place.
Seem 2 neurologists and had emg and have been told nothing to do with anything neurological. Got blamed on thyroid.
I have sat with GP and tried to talk to them about uat and what to do? How t self help - eg diet and exercise but just get told to take levothyroxine and this solves it.
Please call me stupid - if this sounds stupid - but I am trying to understand what causes uat and also what does it mean. For example one of the neuros said antibodies were high - gp said they werent.
Just for information the following are results from blood test over the last 9 months. My Levo was increased in July 2017
Serum tsh level 5.18 mid/l
Serum free t4 level 16.0
Thyroid anti body level 243
Serum tsh level 1.45 miu/l
Serum t4 level 18.2
Serum tsh level 1.59 miu/l
Serum t4 level 18.1
5th March 2018
Serum tsh level 1.92 miu/l
Serum t4 level 20.8
Since xmas I have been actively eating better - less meat and processed food - and exercising more
I asked gp about the numbers rising and he said it’s fine and with in range and nothing to worry about.
Can anyone give their opinion just so i have an idea what is happening and if you interpret results it would be great.
Feels like when I go to docs it’s a case of take these pills and all will be fine - without an explanation
They tell me to read things online but so much conflicting information regarding diet etc!
Can Anyone offer some
