Can anyone help?... I'm new to this and don't know where to go from here.
I have been hypothyroid for around 10 years. Presently taking 100mg Levothyroxine.
Whilst taking Levothyroxine all those years, I still have symptoms of fatigue, can't think clearly, no motivation etc.
At present I am off sick with fatigue and stress. This time I feel much worse. I am so exhausted that I cannot stand for long at times, cannot go up the stairs without aching legs and breaking into a sweat. Can't remember things, can't sleep well, no appetite, irritable, etc.
I've been so taken back by my symptoms that I've visited the doctor, homeopath and an osteopath!
Went to see the doctor today to discuss my blood tests that were done last week in response to my sudden severe fatigue!
TSH 4.25 (0.3 - 5.5)
FT3 not tested
FT4 22.7 (12 - 22)
(Last November was TSH 7.4, FT3 3.7, FT4 19)
The doctor was not interested in my symptoms, saying they could be anything. I said that I'm on Levothyroxine but still have all these symptoms. He said my results are normal!
I then pushed him to refer me to an endocrinologist, he said he would but I'm wasting my time as he would see your results are normal!...?
I don't understand... He gave me another blood test, no advice on how I could feel better... Nothing!
Where do I go from here?...
