Hi, I'm new here. Badly in need of some advice. I have been trying to conceive for the last 3 years and a half. The last two years I was feeling increasingly tired with many other symptoms. Despite a lot of problems with my period the hormone test (including TSH) done two years ago came back as normal according to GP. Only advise was to lose weight and I was not offer any further investigation till I lose a lot of weight. Last year I came back to the doctor, after losing a lot of weight with great effort, the symptons got a lot worse and again the hormone test were considered to be normal. I was then referred to private fertility clinic. Here after seen the irregular patterns and the TSH results from the NHS, they prescribed me Levothyroxine (my TSH was 4.1 and looks like the previous results 2 years ago were the same). The private clinic referred me back to the GP for further investigation (endoscopy and biopsy) and to carry on prescribing Levothyroxine.
After this the GP have been increasing the dosage every 2 months and now I'm on 100 mg daily. This was considered subclinical, but being 100 mg daily it does
not sound subclinical to me. My symptoms are much better now, but the GP has only tested for TSH in order to get down to 2.5
Should I be asking for referral to endocrinologist in order to have a diagnose rather than just rely on the TSH levels? The GP does not seem to understand the issues and I don't know where to go for help
