Hi all, this is my first post, I have been reading posts for a few weeks and now found some confidence to post!
I have had an under active thyroid medicated with Levothyroxine for the past 5 years, during this period I have had 2 children and got on with life thinking nothing of the fact that I feel rubbish. Now that my youngest is 2 and sleeping through the night it has only just occurred to me that it is not just life.
I went to see the GP about 2 months ago with numerous issues, not being able to loose weight, constantly being exhausted, not being able to sleep but when I do sleep nothing can wake me, swollen hands and feet to name a few, my bloods were tested (I don't have the precise info) and were normal....
After speaks with a colleague they suggested I get it checked out through BUPA which work are members of. I contacted them and need s GP referral so phoned the GP who have told me I need to see my GP so I have an appointment next week. I am going crazy with the anxiety does anyone have any positive stories on how they have dealt with this?!
Sorry for such a rambled post and TIA!
