I was diagnosed in April this year but not actually given any results. The doc phoned to tell me that my "thyroid was underactive and there is evidence of some antibodies." I was prescribed Levo 50mg and told to get my levels checked in 3 months time. Had them checked after 12 weeks ( meds had run out by then) and when I telephoned for the results the receptionist said eveything was normal. Still feeling mega tired and achy with days of brain fog followed by being very alert! Also I am developing patches of psoriasis on hairline and elbows. Wondering wether to ask for B12 to be done as my Grandmother had pernicious anaemia. Haven't actually seen a doc as all this has been done by telephone! How often should I get bloods done? The snotty receptionist said they are only done annually? I'm 63 and wondering if it's now just old age approaching??
