Some of you will know my story but here's a very quick recap...
Docs apt - late March 16, I suggested my thyroid was under active. Due to not being able to lose weight. Doc said it was the menopause (I'm 43) but allowed blood tests, she said they were 'all ok'. Greygoose & Suzi said B12 was low.
Horizon blood tests - say TSH is above range but everything else in range (these were posted on another thread).
Since then I've been supplementing with 5000ug of B12 & a b complex hoping that this will help & it has. However, reading more & more about the condition I'm seeing that I have other symptom's that I never even thought were related.
I've printed off hypothroyid & menopause symptoms & many of them are the same but I have some on the hypo list that are not on the menopause one which indicates to me I am showing hypo signs. I plan to take this to the docs but I'm panicking that she's just going to brush me off again. I'm also worried that she's right & that it is the menopause, this isn't a problem as I know it's coming, but would mean that the hypo symptoms are all in my head.
I put 2 stone on in a year and have spent the last 12 months trying to lose it - I have a personal trainer who works on my nutrition with me, I do yoga twice a week & pilates once & my weight is not moving at all - even the PT thinks it could be a thyroid issue.
I have trouble remembering words - I constantly mistype words on my pc at work (thiank god for spell check!). I sent a letter out in a blank envelope a few weeks ago & put 2 letters in the wrong envelopes to the wrong people. I work in compliance so it's my role to ensure everyone is working within rules & regs & I feel like I'm undermining myself when I get things wrong - especially simple ones like posting a letter?!
I don't want to be 'fobbed off' again on Thursday but if she doesn't understand the condition I fear I will be.
Any help gratefully received.
