I'm a 30 year old female that needs help!
I went to my GP last Friday because I have a number of symptoms that I'm worried about:
1. Hair loss (thinning at my parting and a large patch at my front hairline about the size of a squash ball)
2. Always freezing cold (I take a hot water bottle to work with me everyday & only a lava hot bath in the evening will stop me from feeling cold)
3. I feel extremely tired & lethargic
4. I feel pretty down and have lost my bubbly personality (I guess you could describe that as depression?)
My mum told me to go to the GP because she has an underactive thyroid after radioactive therapy after being overactive.
The GP gave me a full blood test with all generic things like liver function, iron, red & white blood cells etc. etc. and I called for the results today. My TSH level came back as normal and the GP has ruled out that it could be my thyroid at all. A
My TSH level was 3.11. They did not test any other thyroid hormones just the TSH.
All other results came back normal except my white blood cell count, but my GP put this down to my body having a mild virus... the GP said there was nothing else they could do with that.
I'm so confused because all of my symptoms point to a thyroid problem. Can anyone help?
