I have been feeling tired, sleepy all the time, my hair and nails are breaking at the slightest touch. I am cold alot. I have no energy, I have times that i can not think straight, I used to have strong muscles in my arms and legs, now I cant even lift my daughter up 2 feet off the floor. every single joint in my body hurts all the time, esp my fingers and toes. the biggest thing is that I am gaining weight no matter what I do. I am getting my water, vitamins, and excersise when I have energy. I talked to the family doctor about thyroid and he ordered labs. it has been almost 4 months and he has not gone over them with me. I can not afford to pay him $84.00 to just see him about the results. My husband and kids have been sick and we have been in his office about 20 times in the past 3 months, I have asked several times for him to just let me know if all is ok, He wouldnt even give me a copy. I work at the hospital that the labs were taken and I got them myself, I just do not know what they mean. I have been complaining about these symptoms for the past year, they are getting worse and they have done thyroid levels 2 times before and I think they are falling each time.
Can anyone tell me what these results might be and should I be worried. I hate feeling this way, I am thinking about calling my surgeon and seeing what he thinks, He know that I have NO insurance and live 2 hours away from him.
They ran Hemotology, Gen Chemistry, and Enocrine studies, everything was mostly in the middle of the normal ranges except for the following:
Alkaline Phosphatase my level was 153 should be 38 - 126
T3 my levell was 2.63 should be 2.2 - 4.0
TSH Third Generation my level was 1.68 should be .4 - 4.2
Hemoglobin my level was 11.0 should be 12.0 - 16.0
Hematocrit my level was 34.0 should be 37.0 - 47.0
MCV my level was 73.2 should be 81.0 - 99.0
MCH my level was 23.7 should be 27.0 - 31.0
MCHC my level was 32.4 should be 33.0 - 37.0
RDW my level was 15.5 should be 11.5 - 14.5
RBC morphology was abnormal
I know it has been a while since I have been on here, last time there were several with good info on lab results.
