Hi, I found this forum via Google and hoping for a bit of advice. After about 2 years of symptoms and several months of denial that there was anything wrong I have an appointment with my GP next week and I want to ask to be tested for hypothyroidism. I'm wary of being fobbed off as I've read so many stories like that so I was wondering what sort of questions I should be asking, what info I should take with me and what kind of tests should I be asking for.
I've made a list of symptoms - weight gain that exercise and diet has no impact on, dry scaly skin that's getting worse and serious tiredness and fatigue that's getting worse. Also migraines and vertigo which I've read can be connected. Is there anything else those with more experience would suggest doing to prepare?
The tiredness more than anything is really getting to me and I need to know what's causing it.
