I am sorry if this is not the right place for this, but I am feeling desperate.
As I am finding out, like so many others I feel I have had symptoms of a underactive thyroid for a while, but my bloods have come back 'normal'.
These are the symptoms I am getting - do they sound like a thyroid problem to you?
Sensitive to cold - I have a blanket and hot water bottle I have to keep at work to stay warm.
Pins and needles in my hands and arms - happens fairly regular.
Low sex drive
Unable to lose weight - despite doing Slimming World and 3 exercise classes a week when I was off work (no way I have energy for this now I'm back full time!)
Itchy mouth - this drives me up the wall and stops me from sleeping.
Tiredness - bed at 9pm every night!
My doctors has put all my symptoms down to anxiety - which is extremely frustrating! I am no-where near as anxious as I was when I was diagnosed with anxiety! I tired explaining this to the doctor - but because I was in tears (due to the frustration of being told I was 'normal') - it was dismissed!
Before I kick up a fuss, I need to know what you think - is it worth getting a second opinion?
I think I am going to ask for the a copy of the exact blood tests that were done. I have requested a copy of private GPs.
Also - do you know if it is worth asking for a ultrasound? I have been reading - a lot - and some sites say that's how most people get diagnosed.
Thank you for your support!
