Reading posts on here I obviously know nothings compared to lots of you!
I've had an under active thyroid for about 9 years and take 175 levothyroxine, my doc put me down to 150 for 2 years despite me raising a number of times that I feel permanently unreasonably tired shortly after this change. He put me back up to 175 recently and 6 weeks on I'm still exhausted. He isn't interested at but I'm sick of feeling so low. I've never had detailed blood tests for it just the most basic one. I have carpal tunnel or tingling hands, wake up with dead arms, and also have painful trigger finger, have seen a specialist who says it's nothing to do with thyroid and gave me a steroid injection.
I am sure they are all connected, but my main frustration now is that we have been trying to get pregnant for over a year, to no avail despite eveything on tests saying we are 100% ok!
Can anyone help? I was wondering if NDT would be likely to make me feel better but don't know how to go about discussing it with my doc as he is just old school and not interested!
I found a private online testing that does detailed testing of all thyroid related hormones and levels for £100 - is it worth doing since my gp won't?
Thank you all.
