Hello, I am new here and this is my first post. I had my blood tested at the end of October as I have been suffering from hair loss, night sweats, the shakes, I'm always very cold, tingling in my fingers, shortness of breath and an increase in migraines. Initially I thought I was just struggling to get over the two operations I had had this year due to endometriosis plus having to live with that everyday makes you feel like crap so I tend to just shut up and get on with things. If it hadn't been for the migraines becoming a problem I'm not sure I would have gone to the doctors if I'm honest. However I did and the first thing she asked me was if anyone in my family had a problem with their Thyroid. My mother has an under active Thyroid and my aunty had cancer of the Thyroid.
Anyway, I had my blood taken and it came back as follows: TSH; 9.4 (up to 6.9) T4; 15 (up to 21)
Because of the results they are unwilling to treat me at the moment, the first doctor I saw was very rude and suggested I might like to try some antidepressants! I responded by smiling politely and leaving as I knew if I responded in the manner I wanted too I would only be re-enforcing his opinion of me. Before i did leave however he did say I could be re tested in 3 months time.
A week or so later I got an appointment with the doctor who actually sent me for the blood test and she says that she is in no doubt that I am suffering from an under active Thyroid but she is unable to help me until I get worse.
I'm so confused, help?!
