Since having a TT for Graves 3 yrs ago I have been 'chugging' along, experiencing new and varying symptoms that I have coped/dealt with/managed with varying degrees of success and failure. I take vast quantities of expensive vitamin/mineral/enzyme support and levothyroxine. Despite keeping relatively fit, managing a healthy weight I am in almost constant physical pain, have a high LDL and dreadful insomnia. My GP has fobbed me off with a fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue diagnosis, neither of which I accept. Of course I am tired, I have insomnia!
I am now keen to try and address/improve the symptoms I describe above, but am not sure where to start. I presume the first step is blood tests, but don't know what tests to ask for. I am then keen to get these tests looked at by A.N. Other than my GP, and to possibly try a different approach to treatment.
I would really like to hear from others with knowledge/experience of this apparently common problem of treating post TT patients.
Many thanks in advance
