Hi all. I've been to the doctors this morning and yet again have been dismissed. In the past few years I have put on weight that I can not lose, I have started to get migraines, I am cold all the time (although the have had two unusual hot flashes this week) I am so fatigued during the afternoon I can't keep my eyes open (a real issue when I have to drive 60miles to work) and over the last week I feel like I have something stuck in my throat. The response for this is to take muscle relaxants as I could have anxiety. I have been to the doctors before to report a pain in the lower right side of my back, this only happens in the evening yet has no triggers and this is unexplained although incredibly painful. I have had Achilles tendinopothy, and have reported breathlessness when walking upstairs and palpitations before, both things put down to a virus but still happen. I am a runner, I exercise at least 4 times a week and go to the gym. I have a band of fat around my waist which I can not shift and no amount of gym work will tone any part of my body up.
I have a BMI in the normal range (I work hard to keep it there) but can't get rid of any weight at all despite trying hard to do so. When I mentioned this the response was - do you have weight issues? I certainly don't have any at all but not being able to control my weight worries me.
My hair on my head is dull, dry, brittle and falls out easily. My nails are ridged and flake.
I have had bloods taken - in the afternoon and not fasting - my TSH came back at 1.9 well within the normal range.
I don't feel anxious or depressed but both were mentioned this morning both which makes me upset as I know that all this is more than that. Dr said she will review my notes and I have to make a list of my symptoms for when I come back - I have another appointment in the 11th.
Any ideas? Am I going mad or am I in the right place? All roads seem to lead to hypothyroid but I feel like no one is taking me seriously.
Thanks in advance xx
