At present, I am trying to get diagnosed with an underactive thyroid, I have ticked off over 40 symptoms on the Thyroid UK checklist.
I have had TSH fasting blood tests done and the result was 3.4. I have also had other blood tests done to check if I was either peri menopausal or menopausal which came back normal (not had the print out as yet) and my prolactin levels which were also normal - I am making another appointment to see the DR next week as I definitely want to push for the full raft of blood tests which haven't been done and if the dr refuses to do them then I will go ahead and have them done privately.
I also have these symptoms and wanted to know if anyone with an underactive thyroid has them too - I feel warm most of the time, that's just it.... I don't have hot flushes or flashes or sweat. I'm just warm to the touch and I feel warm - however my basal body temperature is low when i wake up in the morning - most of the time it's 35 something or other and it can go below 35!
Very occasionally, I will have quite intense sugar cravings and crave most of all chocolate. I don't eat a lot of sweet things anyway and tend to restrict myself to having something sweet at the weekend such as chocolate and going hand in hand with that, I can eat a good dinner portion and within half an hour, feel hungry again which doesn't make sense at all! This doesn't happen all the time though - so just wondering if anyone else also has these symptoms.
