I'm struggling to figure out if my thyroid may be the issue with me. I have phases where I am so tired that I down caffeine just to be able to keep my eyes open. On bad days, I can take a 5 hour energy, and fall asleep within 30 minutes. During week days, it's a struggle not to fall asleep as soon as I get home from work. On weekends, I could sleep the entire day and still be tired.
I have bloodwork that I am reviewing before a doctor's appointment next week to see if we can figure anything else out. These results are 2 years old, but I wanted to see if someone could help me translate.
TSH - 1.770
Thyroxine (T4) - 6.9
T3 Uptake - 27%
Free Thyroxine Index - 1.9
This bloodwork was taken in the afternoon, while I was fasting, and it was on a good day. I've yet to be able to get blood drawn on a day when I am exhausted, because I cannot tell when they will be. So I wonder if my numbers would be different when I'm not feeling well?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
