I had thyroid cancer in 2001 and a Thyroidectomy. My doctor at the time said I would be on Thyroxine for life. 3 and a half years ago I moved andy new GP took me off the Thyroxine and since then I have been feeling really tired, put on nearly 2 stone, have had memory problems and dry itchy skin. I have had blood tests and GP says my Thyroid levels are fine.
3 weeks ago I started fainting and have changed GP. New GP took bloods and those came back today, she says Thyroid levels are fine but I have vitamin D deficiency which I argued that is another side effect of Hypothyroidism. I am now on a 6 week vitamin D course but feel that they are not treating underlying issue.
