New to posting but not to reading. I have been 'borderline' in terms of my thyroid profile (according to GP) and it took 2 years to be considered hypothyroid. My health has wavered a lot in that time. The usual story, weight gain, fuzzy head, walking through treacle - stairs are not my friend. Now on Levo 75 mg per day and mostly feel better. This forum has provided me with the confidence to declare that I am not depressed, suicidal or menopausal (that shipped sailed a long time ago). My GP practise moved me to another Dr who said that over 40% of women my age suffer from thyroid problems - but the next part of the sentence never came (as in what he could do to help). Just had my bloods done separately and would appreciate advice. Thank you all for contributing to this board - without it - I think I would have left work and just crawled under the duvet.
