Hi,. I am new to this site but have been convinced that I have underactive thyroid for the last 3-4 years but my GP insists that my previous results were "normal". I feel extremely depresssed most of the time for absolutely no reason, sleep like the dead and then get up feeling as if I could lay down again, my nails (previously my pride & joy!) are flaking and peeling, my hair is brittle, etc, etc. Most days I feel as if I want to burst into tears but can't and don't, it's just a feeling. Of the symptoms on the Thyroid.org website, I can relate to approx half in varying degrees
I am seeing my GP again tomorrow for the results of the latest blood tests but am dreading being told once again that there's nothing wrong with me. 3 months ago, my TSH was 1.2 mU/L (0.35-5.0), nothing thyroid related was tested but in 2013 I had a private test done and the results were:-
TSH 1.29 mIU/L (0.27-4.2)
Free thyroxine 11.2 pmo l/l. (12.0-22.0)
Free T3 4.2 pmol/l (3.1-6.8)
Can anyone interprete these and tell me if I am completely wrong about my thyroid or if I really am just a lazy, moaning, miserable person which is how I'm starting to feel.
Btw, I've been on antidepressants for about 2 years and mostly, they don't help.
I would really appreciate comments from you kind people out there. Thanks xx
