Ok, the endocrinologist wrote to my GP saying that, despite my symptoms and an existing autoimmune condition, my TSH of 3.9 was normal and perhaps a T4 and repeat TSH could be done if it was felt necessary and if either of these fell outside the set boundaries then he would gladly see me but his opinion is that I am classically euthyroid (normal). The bloods had been done but the labs refused to test them and the GP didn't push.
My symptoms are.... low pulse (45-60), shortness of breath, hair loss, swelling of ankles, hands and sometimes face, depression, difficulty losing weight, easy to gain weight, palpitations on and off, pain in feet, legs and lower back, extreme fatigue, ability to sleep for hours and hours and still feel exhausted, no interest in anything, dry eyes, difficulty focusing despite 20/20 vision when tested, hearing loss, loss of libido, acne and dry skin.
Am I a hypochondriac? Am I imagining these symptoms? I'm starting to think that I'm going mad.
I've started taking a multivitamin containing iodine and all the B vitamins but have decided to start taking NDT, am I making the right choice and is it safe? I'm sick with worry.
