Hi I am new to this site and would really appreciate your guidance. I have been on levothyroxine now for about 10 years, currently 150mg. During all of this time I have never felt well
I could literally sleep for England and have never ever woken feeling refreshed. If I have any spare time I sleep and every few weeks will sleep 24 hours solid - not ideal for a working mother
I have really thin hair and nails, cannot lose any weight unless I eat less than 500 calls a day and have a constant low level headache. More recently I began having the most horrific sweats which literally leave me soaking wet. I initially thought this was my age but I am on Hrt. Someone suggested it could be my thyroid so I am going to ask for a blood test. My doctor is quite dismissive about my condition and doesn't tell me much or explain what my results mean so I would appreciate your guidance on exactly what I should be asking for to ensure a thorough blood test. Hopefully I can then post them here and get your opinion. Many thanks.
