Hi, I'm new to this site but have been suffering for about seven years. At first my gp said I had post natal depression, then post traumatic stress and irritable bowel. It wasn't until me and my husband had been trying for another baby for 3 years and my periods stopped that I as testes for my thyroid. It was very low and my auto immune antibodies were through the roof. This was about 2 years ago. I've been on levothyroxin since but have never felt well, I sleep all day while my daughter is in school, have a very poor appetite and have been putting on weight. My gp hasn't been con acting me for my follow ups and I thought they were checking while they were doing all my other bloods. I stopped getting periods again in January so I made an app for my bloods which is when o found out I hadn't been checked for over a year. My levels were severely low. I e just had more bloods today but they only check the one level. The medication doesn't help and my gp has refused to do other tests. Should I have been sent to see an endo to find out what is behind the low levels in order to treat it better. I feel as though the gp only wants t give me the media then send me on my way and job done! I had to take a year out from uni but am going back in September and would like to feel leas exhausted to be able to do my work.
