Just got off the phone with my GP who's seemed less informed than me on every occasion I've seen him. I started with pins and needles in hands and feet 8 weeks ago, its really mild but worse after alcohol or exercise. I get a heavy feeling in my arms if i'm using them. I can work through it and keep going. I've also had funny feelings in my tongue and some tingling in my throat. I take 100mg of actavis levothyroxine a day. My blood test is always first thing in the morning.
My lab results came back as;
vit D; 99
vit B12 334
When I was first diagnosed 2 years ago my TSH was 20. No one has yet to explain to me why I have an underactive thyroid, I just don't feel like I am getting any answers.
I don't know what to ask for, my GP has just said to me what do I want to do be referred to Neuro or Endo?
I've picked Endo for now but I'm scared its something else, I'm so fed up, I was full of energy before christmas even going to the gym before work some days, now I can't even think about exercise. Also if there are any really good endo's in manchester/cheshire please let me know although I will travel to london if I have to.
Thank you for any help you can give me
