I have been diagnosed hypothyroid for 3 years now and have been on 100mcg of levothyroxine for this time. I have never felt any better on it! Symptom wise I am still exhausted all the time, unable to lose weight, cold, hair loss, depressed and feel constantly in a fog. I last had a blood test 4 weeks ago where apparently my TSH levels were normal- how can that be?!!
In desperation I have just gone to see a private consultant whom I thought would be able to help me. In just a 5 minute appointment (which cost me £185) he told me as I had 2 small children this was why I was tired and all my other symptoms can be put down to getting older and peri-menopausal. I'm 29!!! I have a large goitre on my neck which is getting bigger every year and I feel absoutely desparate. I'm on anti-depressants as I feel so low.
Has anyone gone to a sympathetic private doctor who's actually listened?! And is willing to prescribe other treatments based on symptoms and not just "normal" blood tests? Any advice or recommendations would be gratefully received!
