It was suggested I have my TSH levels checked. I logged onto my page at Johns Hopkins (why I didn't do it sooner....?) and found that my levels as of 6-7-13 were:
TSH 0.50-4.50 mcIU/mL 0.19
I also saw my red and white blood counts and hemoglobin were low as well.
RBC 4.50-5.90 M/cu mm 3.20
WBC 4.50-11.00 K/cu mm 3.14
Hemoglobin 13.9-16.3 g/dL 9.6
I've had a general lack of energy (fatigue), especially in the mornings and a feeling of cold even in the heat of the day. I have to wear a lined flannel shirt and sleep under extra blankets at night when Marcia is sweating.
I have blood work scheduled for August 9th and see my MO the about an hour afterwards. I'll address this as well as the pain med issues then as well as with my RO on August 6th.
From your experience, would this account for the side effects I'm describing?
