I saw a locum doctor at my GP practice (over year and half ago) who diagnosed under-active thyroid as I had 3 blood tests which were under the lower level slightly. Since then I have had to argue to get blood test and asked for full thyroid test but given me the results just for TSH, she also did zinc and copper test too.
Serum TSH: 1.82mu/L (0.35-5.50)
Serum copper: 16.1 umol/L (11.0-25.0)
Serum Zinc: 11.1 umol/L (11.0-24.0)
I currently take the following medications:
Cerazette 75 mcg
Ferrous sulphate 200mg - was low so prescribed
Calcichew with D3 - 3 day - vit d was low so was prescribed, then tripled then doubled dose
Cyanocobalamin - 50 mcg (B12)
Forceval - vitamin and minerals
I have the following issues: very tired; lethargy - can wake up and still be absolutely shattered; insomnia - was sent for sleep apnea test and given machine as have interupted REM sleep; recurring athletes feet; cold sores constantly; sores at back of throat; both fingers and toes lose feeling and go blue then red; bones aching and hurting constantly; balance off; re-occuring ear infections; hair loss; feet really painful; depression; low all drives. Alos struggling to lose weight. Had bypass 4 years ago and been fighting since then. I understand that because I had the bypass I can malabsorb vitamins and minerals but really struggling.
I understand that this may be not thyroid and could be anything else, but my GP is so reluctant to even discuss that I just would like some guidance if anyone can help.
