Hi guys, I have been directed here by posting on another forum as I'm at my wits end. Since 2011 I have been vaguely unwell. Went to GP as I was always cold, even in summer, tired, losing hair etc, felt spaced out. He did bloods and all was normal so I went away feeling it was me. Then in 2012 I started getting dizzy and off balance. Went to a more sympathetic GP in the practice and have been back and to since then still undiagnosed and feeling worse. I started getting muscle weakness and trembling, dizziness, breathlessness and horizontal ridges on my nails. Did more bloods Sept 2013 and found out to be v anemic and low ferritin. Was given iron tablets but couldn't tolerate them so Dr did another blood test and told me to stop taking them as it was now in normal range. Asked him to check my thyroid as I match all the symptoms. In July 2014 it was TSH 2 and FT4 10.4. Again told normal and he couldn't prescribe any thyroid meds as I was in the normal ref ranges so said the only thing he colud do was refer me to an endocrinologist. I am on the waiting list.. I so suffer from anxiety even though I feel fine in that respect now so he says it's my anxiety causing this but I know it's not!
Fast forward to now and I feel so old and unwell, I'm only 35! I am back at the Dr on Monday and going to ask him to re-test my thyroid and possibly iron levels. I took some print outs of info that suggested all my symptoms were hypothyroid, I match them all! I feel like a wind up toy that has run down.
