I've never posted anything on these forums before just read other people's posts but I need a little help as my doctor isn't helping at all. Sorry for the long post.
I have been having many symptoms of being hypothyroid even down to the swollen and scalloped tongue for a couple of years now but I suffer from Endometriosis so put the fatigue down to that. I did eventually go to my doctor who did some blood tests and my tsh came back borderline (they didn't seem to want to give me the actual figure). I was told to have another test after 3 months which came back perfectly normal (doctors words not mine), with a bit of pushing they did give me the figure of tsh 4.05. doctor decided that my physical symptoms were due to depression and upped my antidepressant dose each time I saw him.
I have done a bit of reading and asked if I could have complete thyroid tests done, doctor reluctantly tested again but only did tsh which was 7.26 (0.35 - 4.5) and free t4 at 12.1 (11 - 23). I then pushed for a thyroid antibody test, the results came back as TSH 6.67 (0.35 - 4.5), free t3 4.5 (3.5 - 6.5), free t4 11.9 (11 - 23) and Se thyroid per oxidase Ab conc 1300u/ml (0 - 60). The action they want to take is to re-test in a year but I'm not sure I can put up with all the symptoms for another year. Doctor still insisting it's depression and wants me to up my antidepressant dose again. Is my doctor correct in saying my levels are normal?
