I'm 24 years old and over the past 4 years my health has steadily declined. My GP has treated me with depression and anxiety over the years (with no improvement) and has seemingly ignored my concerns that my mental health was a symptom, not the cause. I have gained roughly 6 st in this time, developed echzema, my hair has thinned, my menstral cycle has gone completely awry, loss of libido, aching all over like I have run a marathon, inability to focus and crippling tiredness that has taken over my life. Recently they investigated PCOS but this doesn't look like the case. Type 1 diabetes, Graves and auto immune conditions run in my family. Problem is the GP did a 'standard screen' as he put it and said this was within normal ranges. I think he said it was a TSH test? Is it possible to have a thyroid issue that doesn't show up through this? He also did a 'smooth muscle antibody' test which he said was to investigate my aching, and this DID come back abnormal. but they've said for now tgey are just going to keep an eye on this. I'm at my wits end!
