My latest blood tests were 4.85 TSH and 11.4 free T4
In June my TSH was 6
In March 2014 I had TSH 2.7 and free T4 13.3
Two GPs at my practice said I was normal and that thyroxine was not appropriate. I got very insistent with the second GP because I am very symptomatic and she has reluctantly prescribed me 50mg as a trial. This GP thinks I just need to lose weight and take an antidepressant but I don't think I am depressed. I am a size 16 so losing weight would be sensible but it's hardly likely to cure all my symptoms, the worst of which is chronic fatigue.
The GP made me feel like a real trouble maker, she was hugely unsympathetic and seemed utterly uninterested in any of my symptoms just focussing on my weight, and I dread going back to her now.
Do you think I am reasonable to want to try thyroxine? I have loads of the symptoms on the thyroid uk checklist.
