Had blood test 3 weeks ago showing the following:
TSH 1.58 (range of 0.5-5)
T4 13 (range of 9-21)
Bloods repeated by different GP last week in different surgery, and now showing:
TSH 3.1 (range of 0.35 - 4)
T4 10 (range of 9-21)
inability to lose wight - 600 cal diet and lost not a pound for over a month
Feel the cold/cold hands and feet
Always bone crunchingly tired
My periods - they start for a day, stop completely for 2, then restart really clotty and heavy - like someone has turned on a tap
Dry skin on face/dry and thickened skin on feet
Sore muscles - like a flu
Memory loss/hard to concentrate. I can literally be halfway through a story and forget what the hell I was saying with no distraction involved
Consistent BBT of 36.1
Loss of appetite
Even with that list, they are saying it's 'more likely' to be PCOS - I've never had PCOS. The only correlating symptom is the periods, and they have written they are 'irregular and scanry' when I emphasised they are regular (although at the moment bizarre) and really heavy.
I am getting my referral letter as I insisted, but am I going to have this fight with the private endo?
I suppose I'm just looking for some verification I'm not making things up, that I am more likely to be hypo than anything else. I'm clinging to that being the fact rather than anything else.
