I am 95% sure I have an under active thyroid. I have a goita and I am waiting for an ultrasound as I have nodules on my thyroid.
However I need some advice. I gained two stone in three weeks, I have dry skin, I am always tired etc but my blood tests always come back negative. Thyroid issues are in my family also. Before the weight gain I was able to lose weight with diet alone (I am disabled and had been for 8 years before this incident) but since the weight gain I cannot lose weight. I have been advised by two GP's to eat less calories however I eat around 1100 a day (which, according to one GP was too much). The other GP told me to just eat 600 calories!
My question (sorry for waffling) is, is there another blood test that can be done to see if I have a thyroid issue? Or do I go to my GP and ask to be put on tablets for an under active thyroid and see if they work?
Help please! Thank you x
