Hello again everyone, well to cut to the chase. I was diagnosed hypo about 4.5 years ago (after being unwell for the previous few years). After 18 months on T4 I managed to persuade my GP to let me trial T3 as well as T4 (75mgT4/20mgT3)- almost immediate result - began to feel I was getting some semblance of my life back. However January this year GP says no longer able to prescribe T3 as our health authority has changed (I believe the GPs are now responsible for spending etc) Over the past few months my energy is just disappearing I've gone from 100mgT4 to 150mgT4 and actually feel worse!! I think my GP feels his hands are tied re prescribing, he has agreed I should see the endo - but i'm not too hopeful ((. I've decided I need to go to see him this week and ask for blood tests - so please help me What should I ask to get tested? I've got permanent joint pain, my legs feel cold, etc etc........... Your help much appreciated Jeannie x
