Very glad to have found this great resource.
I was diagnosed about 3 years ago with Hypothyroid after feeling drained all day long and all the other side effects of the illness. GP sent me for the blood test and put me on 25mcg of Levothyroxine. Had my latest test just a few months ago and it was taken about 2 hours after I had taken my Levothyroxine medication. I was not expecting the test. The results came back and I'm still below the "normal" range. I asked to be put on 50mcg but told to wait about 6 months for the next blood test. Every time I'm tested I always come in low. I feel my GP is just fobbing me off. I still suffer from brain fog, insomnia, lack of concentration and the other usual things. I tried on my own of do 50mcg for a week and I started to feel a good bit better. We are hoping to go private after xmas and hopefully get the treatment I need. We have also considered flying to Greece and buying the required medication. Why won't the GP take me serious on this? From researching sites like this, it seems thousands in the UK are going through the same issues.
