I have recently had some bloods taken after last year showing that I had a really low TSH of 0.3 but was told to go away by the Endocrinologist as it was "OK" even though I had every symptom of overactive thyroid. I suffer with an irregular heartbeat for which I take medication but after years of struggling with it I think it may have been connected to the thyroid (I am also going through the menopause which doesn't help!) I currently have so many symptoms, terrible muscle aches and pains (predominantly legs) chest pain, tender sternum, pain behind the ribs, nausea, anxiety, tingling, headaches, constipation, hot and cold sweats, I feel exhausted from years of not sleeping well but the anxiety keeps me "wired" ... every day I feel I wake up with something else wrong. I have a very strong family history of thyroid problems but I am having no luck in anyone taking my symptoms seriously. Are there any other tests I should be having as well? I have now paid for these tests privately so am happy to have more if anyone can recommend?
Thank you so much in anticipation .. April
