Hi just looking for bit of advice ...after a long battle with GP - and previous diagnoses of Fibromyalgia (in June 2016) - i convinced her to rerun my thyroid test and antibody test. After a some what confusing telephone conversation with GP today i was told my T4 was on low end of scale 15 (12 -25) and that my antibodies where at 127 (35 top end of range). GP said that I am have hypothyroid and will start me on low dose of medication. However when i asked him if the antibodies meant i had an autoimmune problem with my Thyroid he said it wasn't as TSH levels have to be off for this (not what research suggests). Not sure what meds etc he is putting me on as have to collect script tomorrow and he wants to do 6 weeks trial. I have been symptomatic since 2010 - with awful body temperature drops, hair loss, pain all over my body, lethargy, foggy brain etc the list goes on. He refused to tell me the other results - reporting they where all within normal range.
