I've been suffering from a host of symptoms - many of which are listed as a diagnosis for Hypothyroid- for approx 25 years ! Always my TSH comes back as normal, blood sugars usually normal and cholesterol raised ( although not treated). 9 months ago I had a very large goitre removed and although my TSH has remained 'normal' it has dropped from 1.6 at discharge to 0.97 a couple of months ago. But I have had the worst (consistent ) symptoms ever in the last 9 months I'm convinced there is a problem> In my desperation to get a diagnosis a couple of years ago I found the symptoms also match that of Fibromyalgia and was 'diagnosed' as such but refuse to accept it. Can anyone give me an outline on the best approach to get the appropriate tests from my GP please ?
