I am 28year old female.I am newly diagnosed with hypothyroidism (7 weeks) I have been prescribed levothyroxine, I was on 50mg-but after 5 weeks of feeling worse the doctor upped me to 100mg. I am still feeling nothing at all, My tsh level was 80-My gp actually said it was the most hypo result she had ever seen. However I asked if I had hasimoto's which she replied 'probably' I am now debating buying test myself (the one that checks vit d,folate,ferrin..etc. I have coeliac disease also (two years diagnosed-) I have had terribly time last couple years feeling poorly/run down/exhausted and now I am worried that I haven't felt any improvement (I didn't expect anything overnight) has anyone got any advice or tips to help- I am also interested in how to get endo referral, I find my GP's nightmare, and like anyone with coeliac/thyroid disease/autoimmune disease you tend to find Gp's aren't great and we know more then them-very frustrated today
