I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid over 12 years ago (I'm 32). Ever since then I've been taking anything between 50mg and 150mg levothyroxine. I've also been on various antidepressants for over 12 years. I always feel tired, ache all over but mainly my legs. Suffer with 'brain fog' very bad memory and lack of motivation in general. Since having my son 4 years ago some of the symptoms have lifted slightly.
I have just come to accept that this is me and I push myself through each day. After reading other sufferers comments I now feel like I've wasted time and I should've been pushing my GP for more help. I've no idea about these levels everyone is talking about I always go for my blood test and take the amount of thyroxine prescribed and ask no further questions as years ago when I asked why am I still so tired etc I'd get fobbed off. One GP said to me 'there's no such thing as ME or chronic fatigue as there is no test for it'. I always left the surgery feeling so frustrated and lost but I am going to start a new fight as I need to feel better before I waste any more of my life. Can anyone advise me where to start and what to say to my GP?
