Hi all, this is my first post. For the past few years I've have been struggling with symptoms of hypothyroidism. I was told 4 years ago that I have fibromyalgia but I'm not convinced. Three years ago I had a tsh of 6 and the dr wanted to test me again 3 months later, I did and it came down to 4.5 so no treatment. Since then my tsh has remains around 4. I am a phlebotomist so I know what tests need doing but my dr's just won't do them. I ordered a blue horizon test which I will be sending on mon. I would be very grateful if anyone would help me when the results come back. Thanks.

Can you change doctors?  If anyone knows who orders what, it's you.  You see the patients coming in and you can tell who is being followed closely and who is getting treatment.  


Hi, I've tried 4 different dr's at my previous practice so I changed practice and having the same problem there. I do see what everyone else has done and I know exactly what tests I need. I will do my blood and send it on Monday.



Post the results and ranges in a new question and members will advise.
