This has been something occuring on and off but this werid chest discomfort alway seems to never fully go away. Like some days, even weeks I'll feel fine, but then this discomfort always on the left side of my chest over my left pectoral/ over the heart area always feels like something is kinda "pulling" it. It get very annoying and it's hard to concentrate or lay down at night when feeling it. Always freaks me out that something bad is going on with my heart or something.
I always find when messing with the doses of either my Thyroid meds or my iron pills it seems to help make it feel better or make it worst, but not sure which one is connected to it. I used to be anemic, but my doctor told me I'm not anemic no more and shouldn't need the iron pills anymore. I used to take 25 mgs a day, then down to every other day, and now not takng them. I have also increased my meats by alot tho also.
I took a blood test last month when I was taking the iron pills every other day. Here are the results:
THYROID PEROXIDASE AB <10. Range( <35 kIU/L
VITAMIN B12 962. pmol/L
FERRITIN 68. Range( 12 - 105 ug/L
TSH 55.10 Range ( 0.35 - 5.00 mIU/L) H
T4 FREE 9 Range( 12 - 22 pmol/L) L
FREE T3 5.2 Range ( 2.6 - 5.7 pmol/L
FOLATE, SERUM 23 Range ( > 10 nmol/L
CRP 1.8 Range (< 8.0 mg/L
The results showed that my TSH was very High, 55.1 and my T4 at 9. Since then I have upped my WP thyroid meds. Currently I take a whole 32 mg in the morning and one half and quarter of a 32 mg at lunch time/noon on an empty stomach. Not sure if I'm getting the chest discomfort cause my Tsh is too high.
