(earlier post has vanished so apologies if this is duplicated)
Appointment due this evening with GP to try and press for further investigations into my thyroid.
Had bloods taken about 4 weeks ago.
Ferritin was 10 (now on iron)
TSH was 3.0 which according to them is well within range of 0.3 to 5.9
Symptoms for last 8 weeks (although to be honest, prob a lot longer)
Extreme lethargy and weakness
Very slow movements and sometimes speech
Trying to do anything physical leads to dizzy spells, breathlessness, tingling in feet and hands and lips
Vision become blurry if I try to do anything too physical
Other things I have noticed
Dry skin with red patches on face (which come and go)
Very dry and dull hair
Permanently cold feet (even if warm to touch)
Metallic taste in mouth (? On iron tablets though!)
Tinnitus (very brief episodes)
Bowels had become more sluggish (although not while on iron)
I'm just feeling a bit fed up already as many of you have shared your own experiences of how hard it is to get further test on a TSH within normal range
I'm going to ask for
Free t4 and t3
Husband coming with me too for moral support - if he refuses the thyroid tests, what on earth do I do?
