I have central hypothyroidism and my TSH readings are more like .0004 or .0007.
Have you been to an eye doc? Have you heard of visual migraines?
Hi Gimel....seen the doc today...he said stay on the Levo and with people with central hypothyroidism FT4 that it can actually make a difference in the first few doses but to really feel to feel the full effects and it takes a couple to few weeks to feel the full effects ...so that confirms me feeling a bit better the day when i started it and it probably wasnt just a placebo effect.
He does suspect something wrong with my pituitary or something and my body is not right he said to be causing all these low levels...so we are doing labs again in 2 weeks to check for Celiacs & some autoimmune antibodies & some pitutary gland blood tests too...we will wait on an MRI to check for tumors but we wiill wait to see what the blood says about it....he also waiting on the FSH levels to come back too. He said that something is going on and we will figure it out...
Yes i have been to the eye doc..,all is well. I suffer from tension migraines and take immatrex for them. The past four yrs my TSH has been down that low in the previous...it was up for some reason this time but the very low 5% of the reference range and also my FT3 & FT4s is what he is looking at...says they shouldn't be low like that ...he doesn't see it very often and when he has it was central hypo. I trust him well...he came from the mayo so he is outstanding and very caring.
What was causing your central hypo.? what are your symptoms like today? what kind of treatment do u get? These symptoms are awful :(
Oops Rumed i didnt mean to call u gimel...my bad! sorry!
It does take a long time to T4 to kick in. It is the storage form of thyroid.
I had a couple of pituitary tumors. I am panhypopituitary.
Uh, waiting for levels to coming back... like in your cycle? FSH is a pituitary hormone as well. Make sure you test at the right time, and the test is done correctly. Lab error and all made it really hard for many of us.
Did they ever do CT scans to check for pit tumors first?
