Hypothyroid symptoms- normal thyroid?

I have literally almost every single symptom of hypothyroid. I finally got tested for it, and the tests showed that I have completely normal thyroid function. I don’t feel well at all and would like to fix whatever this is. What else could it be??

  • You still could be hypothyroid. My first test came back normal. 6 months later, the test showed I was hypothyroid. Symptoms of the condition seem to show up long before its reflected in the TSH test. Also, TSH changes throughout the day, making it a poor test for diagnosing. Better tests are the free t4 and free t3. When thyroid tests are done, they should always be done first thing in the morning when the metabolism is near its low point of the day. An afternoon test should not be done because TSH is at its lowest then. Another bad thing about TSH is the range. AACe changed the rangeto 0.3 to 3.0 a few years ago, yet most labs are still going by the outdated range of 0.3 to 5.5.

    I had that too. My problem was just hypoglycemia. The symptoms are almost exact. A change in diet and all my problems went away.
