Hey there. I had a total thyroidectomy in 2010 and since then I've been taking 100mcg thyroxin every day. It's never changed and I've always felt fine. Over the last few months I have started to feel drained, tired all the time and the usual hypothyroidism symptoms of tingling fingers/arms/feet, confusion over simple things and aching all over. I went to see my GP again yesterday and I need another blood test. They won't up my dosage with testing but I feel that I am not believed when I explain how I feel all the time. When my results come back 'normal' or 'no change' but I know there is something up, how can I get them to consider upping my meds to see if it is that? I'm already on vit D so it's not that, I take supplements daily as well. I don't think I can cope much longer feeling like I've not slept or that I'm going mad because I have forgotten how to use a cooker! Any help or suggestions gratefully received!
