Went to my GP last week because I was experiencing all the symptoms of Hashimitos thyroiditis. I had have hyperthyroidism in the past about four years ago. I had blood tests -first lot to do with auto immune system stuff I think- locum GP explained nothing and got grumpy when I asked. Results came back and she rang to say yes thyroid is functioning abnormally and to go for another blood test to test for T4 I think? And maybe something else?
Rang for results today feeling optimistic that it would show as abnormal too and that I could get the right treatment to just be told by the doc's receptionist they have come back normal. But I am experiencing all these classic Hashimitos symptons still. What is going on do you think? I feel quite down that the help I thought I'd get doesn't look to be likely but I am finding it very hard to function with such tiredness and depression and have gone from slender size 10 to rapidly growing out of size 12's in about six weeks after years at fairly constant weight. Adding to my depression.
What should I do? I felt so knocked back I didn't know what to do or say at the end of the conversation with doc's receptionist. Please help?
