I am at my nerve’s end with all of this. I had labs done and talked to my GP at the beginning of last week. Negative for RA, sugar is OK, potassium and sodium still good. Nothing really to help explain the unrelenting fatigue and weakness…EXCEPT…my TSH is low at .096. Now, I must admit I don’t know much about the thyroid, even though I have been on meds for quite a while. Everything has always been fine, take my cute little green pill and worry only about my cortisol levels. (GP did tell me that normal range is 0.5 – 5.0, so my numbers do sound low.???) BUT if I am indeed hyperthyroid, I am showing none of the classic symptoms. I have lost my appetite and some weight, which has made me happy, but not if it is caused by over active thyroid.
And even though my labs showed no infections, bladder or UTI etc, I am running a low-grade fever on and off. Usually about 99.3 – 99.5.
So, my GP sent a FAX to my endo and I expect to hear from her (hopefully) by Monday.
My sleep has been totally screwed up, trouble falling asleep at night, and trouble staying asleep at night. That’s a given with chronic illness I know, I see quite a few of my buddies on-line in the middle of the night.
Let’s hope Dr. Endo-Girl comes up with something……………sigh.
