Have been feeling unwell for a long time. More noticeably for about 8 weeks but in reality I'd say I have been struggling with tiredness for several years.
In recent weeks I have been suffering from dizzy spells, restless legs, palpitations, double vision, slurred speech, extreme tiredness and weakness, skin and hair problems and insomnia.
Went to GP for full blood screening - they said all results 'normal' apart from ferritin which was 10. So I have been started on iron tablets and now the waiting game commences for iron levels to return to normal.
I decided though to request a print out of the rest of my blood results, even though they said the rest were normal, I still wanted to have a look myself.
My TSH is 3.0 but according to print out this is within normal range of 0.35 to 6.9.
However after doing bit more research online my TSH is borderline high and could be indicative of hypothyroidism.
No other test were carried out for thyroid that I could see, just TSH ( unless T4 and T3 have another name?)
Is my TSH too high? My GP seemed utterly uninterested and given that they are going with a upper range of 6.9 is there any point me trying to push for further investigations?
If I was well then I wouldn't bother but I am really struggling and not sure what to do next?
