I have been suffering from many of the side effects of an underactive thyroid for a while now which seem to be getting worse, mainly the weight gain, tired all the time, aching limbs, pins & needles etc. I first went to my GP in August 2013 and had blood tests, my T4 was 11.4 and my TSH was 1.96, bloods were taken again in January 14 and were 10.7 and 1.41 and they were last taken 9 months ago when they were 9.4 and 1.95, the range used for all 3 tests were 7.8 - 17 for T4 and 0.34 - 5.6 for TSH.
I realise that all 3 results show I am in the "normal" range according to my GP but especially my T4 seems to be lower as time goes on and I am wondering if I maybe border line.
I have tried to discuss this with my GP but she just tells me that I must be going through the change (I am a 49 year old female) and she just keeps offering me anti depressants.
Is it worth me having bloods taken again? Any suggestions/advice greatly received.
