Bloods from April 12 when neck swelled and I grew an extra head (nodules) TSH 1.5 (0.27-4.2) Free T4 14.2 (11.0-22.0). Partial thyroidectomy Oct 12. Started feeling terrible 1 month later but dr's refused to test bloods until Jan 13. TSH 4.95 (range as before) T4 13.5. Told me I was normal and the 35lb weight gain since Dec and fatigue would go if I exercised more and ate less. I cried for 10 mins in the car. I was told to come back in 6 months. I returned the following month feeling even worse. Very reluctantly retested me. TSH 6.69 T4 11.6 (ranges as before). Even more reluctantly prescribed 50mg levo. Tested again June 13 TSH 4.1 and won't test T4 because I'm normal. Aug TSH 3.25 still feel rubbish. Up to date - March 14 TSH 3.23 and after lots of beggings and a huge list of hypo symptoms a different dr at practice has added 25mg every other day. Next bloods in 3 months. I've been dieting since Dec and hardly lost a lb, the fatigue is terrible and the usual huge list of other hypo symptoms. Dr's insist I'm normal and I have no idea where to turn next. Any idea's thyoid community? Please don't tell me this is now my life
