I have suspected Hypothyroid for many years, and as the rest of you know, the doctors can be a little unresponsive. The Thyroid UK checklist is more ticks than anything else when I do it. I have just received a Blue Horizon Home Test (Thyroid + 10), but all of a sudden I am doubting myself!
I know undoubtedly that many of my symptoms are constant, but I feel as though sometimes they get less worse. Is this possible? Or is it just the rare occasion that I get some sleep that I am better equipped to deal with the aches and cascades of other symptoms?
Does anyone else experience this? I also wonder if it is just the years of doctors saying everything is normal on all tests and I am perfectly healthy (bar PCOS) getting into my head.
Surely when you know something is wrong despite all NHS tests coming back clear, it should be investigated and not just treated with anti-depressants?
Also worried that the Blue Horizon test will come back negative, as then there really doesn't seem to be any explanation. Have been supplementing B12 and multivitamins for 2 months, but doesn't seem to make a difference. What strengths of Vitamin D would be recommended as a trial if all is 'well'?
Thanks for the responses everyone.
