Last October, I had a TSH of 3.41 and felt absolutely terrible. I had all of the classic symptoms of hypo and my doctor begrudgingly admitted that I was subclinical, but she wasn't going to do anything about it.
My next blood draw showed a TSH of 2.13, and I was still feeling awful. My hair is so thin now, I've put on a lot of weight and can't lose it despite really low calorie diets. Can't exercise anymore.
Now, all of a sudden, most of my symptoms have stopped. My mind is still foggy and my hair is falling out but I keep gaining/losing the same 5 pounds (lost 3 pounds, gained 2 the next day, lost 1 today) every day without any changes to my diet or exercise. My skin isn't as a dry. My nostrils aren't as dry either.
I actually feel like I'm swinging a bit hyperthyroid right now, maybe. My heart isn't racing but I'm getting anxious more often than normal, waking up with my mind going a mile a minute, but that's it. The anxiety is definitely not normal for me though. Still having mood swings, too. I can exercise a little better but it still REALLY wears me out. I keep getting pains in my shoulder joints too, and my ankle joint keeps locking up like it has for months. Still have a low pain tolerance and am bruising easily too.
I've been chasing doctors for months to do all of the proper tests on me, and I've been holding off on trying to have a baby because of all of this but if the symptoms are stopping, does that mean I'm no longer hypothyroid and should stop begging to be tested? Or are my symptoms going to come back?
I've read that if you have Hashimoto's, you can swing back and forth between hypo and hyper. My TPOaB came back normal when I was checked, but I don't know what my FT3, T3, TGaB, etc. are. Just TSH, TPOaB, and FT4 were checked, and they were all normal.
Please help me. No one is giving me any answers and looking it up online isn't showing me anything either.
