Can someone suggest please whether I need to get my brain in gear and talk myself out of feeling tired.
Was severely anaemic a year ago. (Now sorted). Was found to be a coeliac. (Sorted!). But still exhausted. All the typical hypo symptoms. Pointed out my permanently swollen neck to gp. Got sent to endo. Who discovered high thyroid antibodies. Won't do anything though because my thyroid is apparently still functioning. The permanent fatigue I feel and foggy brain is due to depression aparantly and maybe I should take antidepressants. Suggests I should have another thyroid test in a years time. Gp won't over rule her decision.

I've read so many similar stories on this forum. But where do I go now? I feel my only choice is to fork out privately to get someone to listen to how exhausted I am and how this is impacting on my life.
Any help or comments would be appreciated.
