After feeling ill for a long time with many symptoms , I'd had my thyroid tested in the past but was told it was subclinical and didn't need treatment !! Always suggesting anti anxiety /anti depression medication . Finally , as my health deteriorated I happened to see a Locum gp , who retested & found high antibodies and diagnosed Autoimmune thyroid & vit D deficiency. I was started on Levothyroxine (Jan 2013) My question is that since then my symptoms have persisted & the next Gp I saw , said that my levels were ok !! And that the anxiety , insomnia I was experiencing were down to depression a mental health problem !! Basically that thyroid problems don't ' cause anxiety or effect your mood ' & ' you only need a blood test every year or so ' & wouldn't refer me on . I have since seen an endochrinologist Privately who is looking to change all medication and hopefully manage this . My question is (again) will I ever feel better ? So ill at the moment I rarely leave the house ? ... Sorry to go on .
