Sorry for the long post. I went to see my GP just over a month ago because I was feeling so unwell and having done some research it all pointed to an under active thyroid. My doctor was on holiday so I had to see a loccum. After I explained why I was there he became very off hand with me and said " well come on then what are your symptoms" . So I told him some of them and mentioned that I already have pernicious anaemia and coeliac disease. He just told me that there is nothing wrong with me and what do I expect at my age and menopausal. However he said he would do a blood to prove nothing was wrong. A few days later I got a call from my actual GP to say I did have uat and he was leaving a prescription for me so I could start treatment straight away. I have been on 50 mcg levothyroxine for 3 weeks now, and have to go for further blood tests in 5 weeks time. Which brings me to today. I am in so much pain my whole body aches and find it hard to get out of bed. My neck is starting to look enlarged and feels swollen along my neckline and feels as though something is pressing on it. My voice keeps going very croaky too. I am not sure if this is connected to my thyroid or not. I am a scared to go to my doctor in case he says it's all in my head. 😪 my TSH is 86.33 ( 0.35-5.00) free T4 is 3.9 (7.00-20.00). Just feeling so down and weepy.
