Please can you all help. I have not been feeling too great for a while, just thinking it's my age/stress etc. Recently developed palpitations. However, also "odd" symptoms over last few weeks - particularly pins and needles/burning feet. Also have many other symptoms listed on Thyroid UK for hypothyroid eg scalloped tongue, wrist pain, fatigue - in fact, I have about 20 at least. Just small things that I have ignored that are not significant by themselves. BUT, my TSH/T4 is "normal" & my GP is refusing to do any further thyroid blood tests.
I know I am not well, but I am getting the brush off. The more research I do the more I see that you can have thyroid problems but "normal" bloods. GP says burning feet is a hot flush! No, these are the other end and I never get these! I am 49 & on HRT so should not get this. Says I am just stressed.
Anyone else have this experience? I am not self diagnosing but I feel GP should be going further and doing further bloods and a referral ie thinking out of the box.
I am a practice nurse so I know this is not in my head!
