Success!! Yesterday after having fought for months to have the GP acknowledge that I have a thyroid problem I have a prescription for Levo to try! My latest TSH was 9.55 (sorry I don't have the range but I think it is below 4.5 for "in range") which she said was approaching 10 in any ones book and I expected her to say we will try another blood test in a few weeks just to make sure but she just wrote me a prescription and said come back for regular testing. I was in and out in a few minutes. And this is from the GP who reduced me to tears a few months ago by saying results of 5.91 and 4.34 were NORMAL and I was unlikely to have a thyroid problem! I feel that I have now an official label for why I feel so awful and it is a huge relief! The key difference I think was that I was very careful to get an early morning fasting test whereas the other tests several months ago were after food and as last as 10.30 in the morning.
