I am on 50mg levo after a few years ago my thyroid rocketed up and then went slow and they gave me levo, weaned me off over a couple of years, and then it went slow again (I believe they think it was caused by a virus but once it's gone it's more likely to go again - is how it was explained to me).
I've never had symptoms before now but have been having more frequent bouts of severe fatigue and gained 5kg. I am a weightlifter so I compete in a weight class so obviously this is an issue and not due to my diet or fitness levels. The fatigue has me sleeping all day for 2-4 days and I collapsed at the top of the stairs last week with exhaustion. 2 days later, I was lifting over my body weight. Something is clearly wrong!
My GP agreed to check my thyroid again after my iron levels came back normal but the nurse doing the test today said it is just for my TSH - help!
Am I justified in requesting to see an endocrinologist? I have to say, I have little to no faith in a GP managing what appears to be such a complex balance.
