I have had enough of feeling this unwell. This week has by far been the worst for me and I have had enough. I am ordering a Blue Horizon test today. I last did one on the 18th January. My GP told me to wait until the end of March before re testing but I can't wait any longer. I want one more result and I will demand I am taken seriously. It's been 7 weeks since I tested. Will this be too soon to re test? I am sure it will be and I can't afford to throw money away but I also can't wait another 4 weeks.
This week I feel drained. On Friday last week I felt a little less tired so I did some yoga, well the next day I was in bed ill all day long and since then I haven't bounced back. I am told this sounds more like CFS but can hypothyroidism cause this? I feel so weak in my legs, foggy headed, dreadful fatigue, I am now feeling quite low. I have no support network, I am beyond drained. Sometimes I have better days but still have the symptoms, then I have days where I call it a crash where I can't function. On those days I still have to cook and clean, do the school run but it's so hard when feeling this unwell. I am 36 and have 3 children, I need to feel well again. All I did yesterday was cry, it was my 5th day of not bouncing back, no energy, weakness in my body, feeling beyond tired, hot stinging eyes as soon as I woke up... I felt ill. I am sick of my GP saying it's my anxiety or depression. Anxiety does not make you ill after some light exercise, you don't end up bed bound just for doing a bit of yoga. I am praying it's not CFS and it is just my thyroid because at least this can be fixed with thyroxine.
I spoke to a friend last night that I didn't realise had hypothyroidism, she was shocked I am not being treated. Her TSH was only 7.1 when she was treated. She never had her T4 tested, her GP diagnosed based on her TSH and symptoms. He did not leave her to wait until her TSH hit 10. She was very ill and felt exactly how I feel. She has told me to get another opinion but I have exhausted 3 at my surgery and only this last one is now monitoring me and saying I am subclinical. The previous GP said I had chronic fatigue and there was nothing wrong with my results as I had no antibodies, what a load of crap.
I attach my last result from Blue Horizon. I am hoping it won't be too soon. I had the THyroid plus 6 test, will this one be enough? I had my ferritin, b12 etc... tested in December on the NHS and they were starting to rise from the summer test which showed them as low.
