I have had symptoms of this for some time, recently they have worsened. I have put on two stone over the past two months despite watching my diet and excercising. I have recently had a problem with a rash and bruising to my legs. I was seen by a dermatologist who says my ~ANA test is showing as positive although my gp still states that my thyroid is fine because of my tsh results. My symptoms include fatigue (sometimes i could sleep all day and still get up feeling tired) itching skin all ove my body (although the rash has cleared) weight gain despite watching my diet, painful and swollen knees and pain in my jaw and neck/shoulders. I could go on but feel like all i do is moan. Is it possible that i have a problem with my thyroid and if so how do i get the gp to listen to me??
