Hi a year ago I went to my docs complaining of tiredness, foggy brain, lack if libido, dry skin and slight swelling on my neck they did a thyroid test but I never got the results and I just left it as felt a bit better over the summer. Since sept I've felt awful then in Dec I started having back problems and been suffering sciatica with bad pins and needles since. A few weeks back I went back to my docs as now in addition to above I am freezing all the time, difficult in concentration, totally exhausted and just not able to deal with normal life, croaky voice with a couple of choking incidents and difficulty in swallowing large painkillers. I had also been advised by my dentist to get a thyroid function test done due to unusual excessive gum bleeding. Been to doc today my tsh level is 0.75 (taken at 10am) they didn't test t3 or t4 my b12 is low and being retested in a weeks time. This time the doc actually examined my neck and immediately wrote out a referral for an ultrasound saying she needed a closer look at my thyroid to see where to send me next. The swelling is now more pronounced Am now worried/confused and feeling like a worn out little old lady am only in early 40s showing signs if peri menopause. Any words of advice etc would be appreciated.
