Hi. I have been going back and forwards to gp surgery for about a year complaint of weight gain and feeling tired. At first I thought it was simply the menopause as I had a hysterectomy 7 years ago. Eventually I had my tfts done.
My numbers were
Free T4 12.9
So my gp checked my tpo. Which was 198
I was srarted on 50mcg thyroxine which I have taken for about 10 weeks. I still feel terrible. I fall asleep at about 7pm every night. I'm tired in the afternoon. I feel that my memory is very poor and despite having a healthy diet and forcing myself to exercise I am unable to lose weight. Over the year I have gained about a stone .
I would appreciate any advice and any tips of how to get doctors to understand how I feel as after my last blood test I was told my tfts had normalised although I don't know the result.
