I'll try to cut a long story short. I have been suffering worsening symptoms associated with hypothyroidism for about a year now. I had TSH tested In January and as it came back in normal range, T4, T3 and antibodies were not tested.
I have just got back from another GP appointment which has shaken me up quite a bit. I was first told I was probably putting on weight because I was eating badly, then was told I was depressed and offered medication and when I asked to have a full range of thyroid tests done was basically shouted at for questionning how this GP 'had managed hypothyroidism for her whole career'.
I'm feeling thouroughly defeated as I can't seem to get a doctor to listen to what I'm actually feeling and not just say there's nothing wrong or I'm depressed. No one has recorded weight or temperature and no one is actually allowing me to discuss my symptoms. My temperature is 35.7 and this is just being ignored.
Has anyone else had similar experiences and if so what did you do next?! I have a family history of thyroid disease on both sides of my family and am feeling increasingly worse. I know it may not be hypothyroidism and I'm happy to be tested for other things but I just want some help!
Is there a list of GPs that anyone can recommend seeing in the UK, ideally in the Midlands or South Yorkshire?
Thanks everyone in advance!
