I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 22 and given levothyroxine ever since, I was then diagnosed with fibromalgia about a year or 2 later, but then visited an endocrinologist (one off appointment paid for by my employer) about 7 years ago who confirmed I actually had hashimotos.
I have been following the recommended lifestyle changes to improve life with these difficult conditions and have maintained a successful high pressure career despite them. It has been tough though.
Recently the pain and fatigue has got worse. I have been to doctors but they say everything is fine, but then they only test TSH.
I'm now 35yrs old and my husband and I now want to try for a baby. I went to see my doctor and asked to be referred to an endocrinologist to support me on this, but he said that I didn't need to.
This goes against the blogs and forums I have read.
Does anyone know a endochrinologist that specialises in hashimotos and would be able to check and advise for pregnancy? I live in London, herts, beds, bucks area and I'm willing to travel to find the right person.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
