I'm not sure what to do next. To fill in where I am: Im 42, 50lb overweight, lots of hypo symptoms (but not feeling cold, in fact heat makes me sick), hypersensitive to smells & perfume (told it was migraine as a migraleve dose helps symptoms), not been happy for 6 yrs since only child born, terrible plantar fasciitis (>2 years), no energy, anxiety/depression, phobias etc. But long history of depression, after anorexia as teenager, glandular fever etc.
My test results 1 month ago showed this:
TSH 2.7 (0.2-4.5 mU/L)
Free T4 12 (9-21 pmol/L)
Total T3 1.9 (0.9-2.4 nmol/L)
TRAB (GP tested wrong antibodies!)
B12 248 (180-2000 ng/L)
Serum folate 6.6 (2.8-20 ug/L)
CCP? 0.5 (0-4.8) (I think my liver is ok!)
Haematocrit 0.358 (0.37-0.47 ratio)
MCV 87 (78-99 fl)
Looking back over the test results, I managed to get the practice nurse to retake a sample & test for TPOAB antibodies (I suspect she's written it down like that... She said she had never done one of these in her whole career!). I'm not even sure the lab will do it, as my GP said my results were "fine"!
Having had support here before, I know that I need to address my B12, as well as my TSH being higher than ideal - it's up from 1.7 last year. I am worried about my GP writing off my concerns because of my depression & eating disorder..
What can I do next? Has anyone tried Nutri Adrenal & Thyroid supplements? Should I try them & what are the doses people find effective? I'm going to get some sub-lingual B12 (methyl cobalamin?) and also increase my vitamins D, as I'm deficient in that (had private test earlier & it's that time of year...)
I'd love to find a doctor who doesn't just write me off but I can't travel to clinics outside Edinburgh (see above - can you imagine not leaving your home for 4 years?) and I know Dr Myhill isn't taking on new patients (and I'm not sure if she's well-regarded?).
Any thoughts really appreciated - I'm desperate to get rid of this pain & feel better!
