Went to see hospital Endocrine doc today feeling pretty fed up now. Just a case of take 100m levothyroxine and it could be months before I see an improvement. Just felt shrugged off like just live with it. Was referred as TS4 was 6 TSH is massive 95 should only be up to 4.5? antibodies 550 when they should only be max 50 doc says I must have had a bug which has caused immune system to attack the thyroid. Have felt like body is shutting down. Common colds turn into full blown flu. Pain all over the place. Is it worth going private? Can they do anything else? Months of this would be a nightmare!
