Hi, just looking for some advice.
I have been having hypo symptoms for around 3 years. Hair loss, puffy neck and face, dry skin/scalp, massive weight gain (around 4 stone ) EXTREME fatigue, cold intolerance ect ect. I have had my tsh tested once 7 years ago and it was 1.8 then I had my son then it was tested again in 2014 it was 3.5 my symptoms have worsened and 2 weeks ago after moving gp my tsh was 4.3 and my t4 was 17.9 (all normal range) during my pregnancy I was sleeping almost round the clock and I just put I down to being pregnant then I put my tiredness down to having a new baby and a 6 year old. But I have never felt well since I'm currently on 3 monthly b12 injections and folic acid tablets I've been tested for celiac I've had numerous blood tests done I've had cameras into every orofes imaginable and nothing has came back. I have found out recently that there are thyroid issues on both sides of my family my point is that I feel genuinely ill and my doctor just dismisses this and tries to give me anti depressants as they say they have exhausted all tests ( but they refuse a thyroid panel) so it must be in my head!! I have ordered a home testing kit has anybody used these? And if they show anything up on them will my gp take the results seriously?? Or will I just need to wait on my tsh possibly coming up again? Thanks in advance
