Hope everyone is feeling well today.
I am a 27 year old individual who has been unwell for almost four years. I was told i was depressed / making it up / crazy and eventually given a lable of fibromyalgia and sent away with a fist full of tramadol and told to live with it.
Both of my parents have thyroid disorders (Hypothyroid) but i was always told despite this and my symptoms matching my mums at her age it was not thyroid related. i got talking to a friend who had a similar story and has succesfully been treated by Dr Skinner. I arranged an appointment (Due a week on friday - the 14th) and recently also had some private bloods done as my NHS ones were always within the "normal" range. I think i know what my results suggest but im pretty new to all this so opinions of those fo you who are familiar with these things would be very welcome.
