So i have been battling with the symptoms of Hypothyroidism for a long time now. I have told them i have a family history - my dad and his mum.
I finally received the full blood tests of which have NEVER been done and my T4 level was at 11.5 reluctantly my doctor put me onto levothyroxine 25mg and said it will either make you feel alot better or wont help at all. She wanted to put me onto anti-depressants!!
So after two weeks i felt like me again. I'm not a lazy person and this is what my body was making me feel like before i had no energy it was very difficult to carry out normal every day tasks without feeling exhausted and like something inside me was grinding to a halt. Thats the only way i can describe it. I'd been really struggling to lose weight (which i still am) and concentrating was a real effort.
So im happy with my dosage until I start increasing my exercise alot this past week. I had my blood tests on wednesday last week. I felt fine on this day! My test results showd a T4 15 and TSH 2.56. From Sunday onwards i have felt really poorly again no energy everything i do is a struggle so ive arragne to work from home so i dont have my long drive into the office and called the doctor.
The doctor said simply its not your thyroid as on wednesday it was fine. we will check if your anemic or diabetic or it just could be phycological. I know its not i nearly burst into tears when she said that it was a real battle to get this diagnosed in the first place and now they are back to not believing me again.
Anyone else had this experience and also know if the blood tests are specific to the day they are taken?
