blood work



I had a bunch of blood work done last week and the results came back today.  My TSH level is 7.  I'm not even sure what that means exactly but I think the normal levels are below 5.  I'm being put on some type of medication that's supposed to restore the balance of my thyroid gland.  I've been really sluggish, sleep 10+ hrs a day, gained about 20 lbs, hot flashes, increased libido, and dizzy spells.  This has all been going on for about the past 6 months and it all started with the dizzy spells. Thyroid imbalance can cause your heart to work overtime = dizzy.  I'm going to get the medication and ask questions about my thyroid gland on Monday. All the rest of my blood work came back normal...
