I have had my blood results in which my TSH is 5,57 but T4 hormones are normal.

For past two weeks i been experiencing exertion when just walking upstairs. Fast heart beat, sometimes heart feels like pumping out of my chest i can feel the heart beat all the time. I have never had any heart symptoms before except my beats were always around 80. I get cold so easily and quickly and just feel unwell and sick.

I have MRSA in throat and i will be getting the medicine next week.

But if my thyroid hormones are normal but TSH is high does this mean anything?

Ill be going to doctor tomorrow.

May God Bless you, answer your prayers, relieve you of your pain and make you stronger than what you are today. Ameen.

Hi soone123. Regarding thyroid testing, you need to have the Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3 and T4) and thyroid antibodies tested. You cannot go only by the TSH; however, I am guessing your TSH is high which indicates hypothyroidism. Do you have the lab range for your TSH result? Please post it, they can vary by lab.

The Free T results are also a range. Even if they are in normal range if your TSH warrants treatment there is room to work within the range. I hope that makes sense. The Free T tests are more accurate. High antibody tests can indicate Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

I highly recommend getting these tests done to get a better idea of your thyroid function.

I don't know very much about what you are experiencing but wonder if you being treated by a LLMD or if you are taking herbals. In addition to the thyroid issues, the other symptoms you're experiencing sound to me like Lyme. When I felt really bad abx brought me back to a fairly normal state. The second time, herbs fixed me up.

On my last blood test, my thyroid was normal but over the past few months, I have had several symptoms of hypothyroidism. I started taking a little kelp each day and the symptoms have disappeared so I wonder if either Bart or Babs scavenge iodine from the body and give Lyme patients thyroid imbalance? I don't know. It's possible.

sonee123, your T4 might be in range but on the low-normal end, which could account for the high TSH.

When Free T4 is low-normal, generally Free T3 is even lower, often out of range low. Hard to feel good then.

Low thyroid hormones affect every system and organ in your body, and can cause heart palpitations when high or low.

Sammi laid it all out as far as proper testing. Definately get the Free T4 and Free T3 tests run (not the Total T4 and T3), as they describe perfectly how much hormone is actually available for cell use. TSH doesn't tell the whole story.

If you don't have thyroid antibodies, you can use supplements to slightly increase thyroid function.

Oh one more thing - soy is the enemy of a healthy thyroid. Check food labels carefully. Soy is a goitrogen, and actually inhibits thyroid production in the gland, and binds thyroid receptors in our cells so the hormone can't get into the cell. Eating soy too often can disrupt thyroid hormone balance, make people feel really unwell. Same goes for millet seed.

Yes, do get the actual numbers.
Your body does not work properly or detox when hypothyroid.
The top of the normal range for TSH is more like 2,5.
Normal TSH is very close to 1.
