I have had various symptoms of hypothyroid for years, building up in little bits since I was about 16. Inability to lose weight, even though I had a very small appetite and exercised a lot. I feel the cold even with the heating on and a blanket round me. My hair is shedding an awful lot more than it should. I'm exhausted to the point where I'm falling asleep on the bus, in lectures. I've had fainting/collapsing episodes. I ache all over constantly. I'm mentally sluggish. Dozens of symptoms. The doctor only recently tested TSH alone, which came back normal. Prescribed me vitamin D pills, to boost my deficiency and help with the depressive symptoms. interestingly enough, some research says 92% of Hashimoto's disease a most common cause of hypothyroidism, suffer from vitamin d deficiency. I have so many symptoms that are affecting my day to day life, but my doctor doesn't seem to be taking me seriously. Am I a hypochondriac rather than hypothyroid?
Please, some advice would be great. I'm losing my mind
