I wonder if you can help me sort the possible causes for low TSH (.29) and low T4 (.07) Three months ago, TSH came was 0.41 (with a normal range of 0.47-4.68) and T4 was within the normal range (0.8-2.2)
I have experienced extreme fatigue for almost five years. Ringing in ears started about three months ago. Fingers in both hands were numb for a month, then cleared. My major complaint is fatigue. There's just no words to describe it.
I am awaiting more test results and know that will shed light; however, I have made the mistake of trying to self-diagnose via the Internet... feeling stressed by the results of that effort.
In most cases, this is a normal thyroid profile perhaps with a tendency towards subclinical hyperthyroidism even though free T4 looks low. The other less likely possibility is a pituitary problem. A general endocrinologist would be the best person to help sort these tests out
