I'm 32yo and I've been diagnosed with hypothyroidism over a month ago. My GP "failed" to tell me (saying there is nothing to worry about) 4 years ago that my TSH was 6.45 so I never gave it another thought until this August when I went back and begged to have some blood tests done as I was feeling like a zombie for the last year. To be honest I blamed my weight gain and complete exhaustion on my job and long working hours. My blood tests came back and my TSH was 130 and T4 4.1 (?!?). They put me on 50mcg Levothyroxine and after 2 weeks I went back and the put me on 75mcg as I was feeling jetlaged constantly. I'm feeling slightly better after 6 weeks on medication but not sure what feeling normal feels like.
I have a hospital appointment with an endocrinologist tomorrow and I don't know what to ask!? Where do I start?
I want to start trying for a baby as well, how long do I have to wait?
Should I change GP's? I think it's outrageous that I had to put up with this for so long and it affected my life so much.
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you
