Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice. About 4 months ago I had bloods taken due to the usual under active thyroid symptoms, I'm 52 and menopausal....so hormones all over the place! the results revealed underachieve thyroid and raised cholesterol (not a lot under active) so was sent for more tests and they came back normal. Problem is i don't feel normal but rather feel helpless and confused - can the thyroid fluctuate and if so do i have to live feeling like this without treatment. i am concerned about the cholesterol and being handed a diet sheet as the only form of intervention. I was shown the graph of 'normal' range and i either teeter right at the bottom or under the line for abnormal. my gp is having none of it and hinted at stress as a cause. the symptoms have a big impact on my ability to work and I'm constantly exhausted. I'm sorry i am unable to quote figures/numbers as i can't hold stuff like that in my head. Also had raised inflamation linked to joint pain?
I would be grateful for any advice. thank you
