I was told yesterday I could have underactive thyroid.
i have been tested a few times previously and always told my "level" was ok
yesterday my TSH was 14.5 but T4 was 3.7( GP explained that T4 is pumping out more hormone to try and assist TSH level
I struggle to lose weight ( can't really )
last 6 weeks been feeling cold , sleepy beyond belief , achy bones and feeling as though things are moving in slow motion - not felt all of these symptoms every single day but the majority of days. this last week has been the worst.
