I have had thyroid illness for 8 years now when I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and graves disease. Within 6 months the graves was controlled and I thenI went hypo and have been put on Levo since 2008. My levels are always up and down and I have kept a diary of my levels and symptoms throughout all blood tests.
I am at the moment going through a really tough time with the menopause so I literally begged a Dr for a thyroid test as I know meno and thyroid can mimic the same symptoms and I have been feeling so down and ill. Last week I got my results back and my TSH is 4.2. the dr has just left it at that because it's in their range! Time and time again I have also begged to have my FT3 and FT4 tested but there's no way that the labs will do this. For the past 3 years I have been taking 50mcg and then 75 mcg Levo on alternative days and no dr will change this. I am feeling quite ill and wondered if anyone could give me some advice please.
