Well just back from seeing Endo - she concluded subclinical thyroid and that i should not be on levo as my TSH levels are normal. She explained that yes my immune system is attacking my thyroid but my thyroid is functioning normally (WHAT) she then said my symptoms where fibro related and needed to wait for new symptoms to indicate the thyroid is starting to decline (after saying fibro and hypo symptoms overlap significantly). She went on to say she wants further tests - re celiac disease and that my thyroid should be checked yearly as high risk due to antibodies. I swear i could cry with frustration, she indicated putting me on levo now could do harm to my heart and bones - this is what she is going to report to my GP. She finished by telling me that in a younger woman they would treat subclinical thyroid (again WHAT - is this not discrimination). She indicated that she thought 'something' was going on but it was not my thyroid. OMG just as i was getting somewhere back to square one
