Hi I have been hypothyroid for 8 years now and the symptoms have never gone away. In fact they are worse than ever ie. exhaustion, pain and aching everywhere, itchy skin, etc. I've been on levothyroxine all this time and have asked various gp's at my surgery if I could switch to natural T3 thyroid meds. None of them will do this because my thyroid tests come back as normal and they won't do any more in depth blood tests. I keep being told I have fibromyalgia but I know this is all down to my thyroid. How do I get a good doctor who will listen? I'm in Manchester and willing to go private if necessary. Any advice would be welcome thanks.
