Hi All,. I have just had further blood tests as asked for T3 to be checked because of worsening symptoms since thyroid removed over 2 years ago. GP was reluctant to ask clinic to do T3 (why is this???). Anyway blood tests came back apparently stating 'normal' but GP reducing Levo dosage from 125 to 100 immediately and further blood test in 6 weeks. I asked why the aches muscle and bone pain, tiredness, feeling lethargic, painful Achilles Heels, painful bursitis in elbow and so on were getting worse and why I am feeling this way, shuffling around like an old lady and always feeling like I am coming down with something! I was advised to exercise! Wish I could!! Told my bloods didn't reveal rheumatoid arthritis or any signs that I was fighting off any illness! Left feeling even more low and wondering if this is it now for the rest of my life!
Does anyone else have these symptoms? I have been reading up on the internet lately and it seems a lot of them go hand in hand with thyroid problems yet GP's don't seem to want to act on it??
