Hi, after having many symptoms that I was convinced were related to my Thyroid , I went to my GP and she did all the usual blood tests which all came back "Normal" or "Within Range". However, after reading the posts and advice on this site I persisted and went back to her and asked for the T3 & T4 which she did.
Went for the result yesterday and even though they are also technically "Within Range" She then said you are borderline Hypo. She said as I have so many symptoms and a strong family history of Hypothyroidism that I could try and low dose of Levothyroxine (25mcg) to see if it helps. So, I started them yesterday.
I'm so chuffed I may finally know why I have these dreadful symptoms and especially why I am so very very tired all the time - which is so debilitating.
She said the tablets can take 6 weeks to work - is this the case?
Thanks to this site I may have finally got a diagnosis so a huge Thank You
PS, I cant quite remember the no's but I am getting a printout for the secretary on Mon which I will post on here. Think one was 11.1.
