Like everyone here, I am searching for answers that I can't get and I keep reaching dead ends from talking to GPs who don't wish to know!
I've just called my surgery to find out that in January, my TSH was 1.44 and my serum free T4 was 9.4.
I was told by my Gp again on Monday, that these readings are normal, and there is nothing wrong with my thyroid. Is that correct? Can someone please please help me? I am so exhausted now, you all know the symptoms - sleeping most of of the day after sleeping all night, on at least 3 days of the week. Some days it's an achievement to brush my hair and teeth. I have pain in my right elbow and hand, and I ache generally all over. I find it hard to motivate myself and move around. My weight has increased which as much as I want lose it, it won't go down any further after 2 weeks. It's like my metabolism has hit the floor. I have a sore throat and dizziness despite tonsils removed
I've been off work since December 2015. I am depressed and low, yet try to be mindful and remain positive so I can sort this out.
I really hope someone can give me some advice as I don't trust my GP anymore.
