I am at the beginning of this journey and i am already confused. I have contacted bupa and arranged to see an endocrinologist next week privately, if treatment doesn't change or if it stays the same I'm not really concerned just want some answers and i know a routine endocrinology referral is not on the cards from my GP as it is all very routine, and unless things are more complicated they don't refer. He told me I was medically well with a TSH of 6.25, i don't understand the numbers but I do understand how I feel which is not very well at all. Im on 75mcg of levo atm and only 9 weeks into this journey. I know I have to take things slowly but I would really like to know when I can expect to feel better and when I can go back to work.
