Hi - I've been feeling dreadful, bizarre periods, crazy weight gain, fatigue, sleepiness, brain fog, inattentiveness, dizziness, low grade sore throat, some skin dryness (I'm not a dry skin kinda person though). I had a blood test done to investigate my weird periods and suggested a thyroid because it runs in my family. The GP agreed. When I checked on the results - the receptionist said "all normal, but they want to recheck your thyroid next year. That didn't sound 'normal' to me, so I asked for a printout and got:
TSH level 5.34 - ref. .4 -- 5.00
T4 level 11.4 ref. 10-23
Which checking around sounds like I'd be getting treatment already in a lot of countries.
Anyway, this will be my first GP consultation since the blood test, so does anyone have some advice about what I should do and what I should ask for?
