I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in August 2014 and my TSH levels were very high. I was immediately put on thyroxine and between then and now my health has not been great. I developed joint pain in April, had weight gain and insomnia. My gp referred me to an Endocrinologist and eventually saw him on Thursday. He looked at my blood results and told me they were great and my weight gain and insomnia were due to stress not my thyroid. I am really good at coping with stress and have never not been able to sleep due to this. I have been upset since seeing him, as I was expecting help not a generalisation about myself.
