Have you had your Vitamin D levels checked lately? So many people are low. My latest test actually came back in the very low end of the normal range, but my endo still wants me to supplement so it will be “optimal.” Fatigue is one of the symptoms of low D. When I first asked my endo to check my D levels, that was her justification for ordering the test.
I was diagnosed with Graves' in 2011 and I've pretty much forgotten what it's like to not be tired. I had another health issue for a year before (when I was also experiencing Graves' symptoms) which weakened me a lot. I lost 75 lbs and gained back 95 lbs, but not in the same places. I now carry more weight in my belly, which is hard on my back. I spend way too much time lying in bed, watching TV. I know I'd feel better and stronger if I got some exercise, but knowing isn't doing. I tend to blame myself for my condition and I'd assume full responsibility for feeling like crap if it weren't for one thing…
In December of 2015, I actually felt good. That was the month after my thyroidectomy and I was so happy to have that thing out of me and finally know that it was benign. Christmas was in the air, and I had too much to do to lie in bed. It was also the only time in nearly 6 years that I've had a normal TSH (2.39). There was a period when I went hypo on methimazole early in my diagnosis, but all the time when I was considered euthyroid on methimazole (judging by my T4 and T3), my TSH averaged around .075.
My endo is more concerned with my TSH these days and is focused on bringing it up. I think the sudden shift has to do with my increased age. ;-) I just hope we can increase my TSH without lowering my T4 and T3 too much. :-/ In my last test, it was .098 - a whopping .007 increase from seven months previously when she lowered my levo dosage. She lowered it again in May, so I'm due for more labs soon. :-)
