Hi, I have a question and hoping I can get some help before my doctors appt tomorrow. I've been hypo with hashi's for about 18 years. In the past 3 years my levels have been all over the place. In 2015 I was diagnosed with a vertigo condition called Vestibular Migraine, its a silent magraine that is not the classic migraine instead of pain it causes 24/7 dizziness. When I was first getting this my health anixety had gone very high and I was so stressed everything was out of control. Int he past few months things have settled some as I am not on propranolol and clonazepam for headaches and anxiety. I decided to check my reverse t3 in the latest labs that I got back this morning and they are high. I've noticed in the past 3-4 months I"ve put on weight and I haven't changed my diet so I new something was up and I've also had a lot of pain in my legs and arms, very similar to fibromayalgia which is what I had when my thyroid was first diagnosed, they told me it was firbo but it was the thyriod. So I knew soemthing was off becAUse of the weight and pain. I usually feel good with my TSH around 2, but it goes up to 3-8 or to low under 1.1. Also my Free t3 is alway around 2.6 which is low to me, but my endo says its ok. Well now its all gone nuts in the lab results. Here they are and maybe someone can help.
TSH 0.862 range 0.45-4.50 T4 9.5 range 4.5 -12.0 Free T4 1.78 High range 0.82 - 1.77 Reverse T3 29.9 High range 9.2 - 24.1 Free T3 2.4 range 2.0 - 4.4 From what I"ve read if revers T3 is high then TSH will be under 1.0. Can anyone explain this and what I should talk to the doc about. My med is levoxyl .75mcgs 4 days a week and .88mcgs 3 days a week. Thanks for any help.
