The symptoms you have are the reason I suggested this previously.
By the way, even your previous TSH reading was above the reference range currently recommended by the AACE, which is .3-3.0. Unfortunately most labs and doctors continue to use the old range of .5-5.0.
I really recommend that you go back for more testing and insist on the free T3 and free T4, along with TSH, and also thyroid antibodies testing to see if there is any related autoimmune system problems affecting your thyroid system. Always get a copy of your test results and keep for reference. The doctor is required to give you a copy upon your request. When you get the results, please post the actual numbers and reference ranges so that members can provide you the best response.
