Hi I'm new to all of this. Even though I was diagnosed with multi nodular grotire at 19yrs I'm now 34. During this time I've never been tested for it at all. For the last 3 years I've been so unwell, with everything relating to thyroid problems. Like weight gain, hair loss, unable to sleep but yet feeling so tired, tinitus, deafness, tingling in hands feet, pains in legs he lost is endless. Asked my doctor to carry out bloods for thyroid mainly, but others was carried out. She said they was normal appart from B12. I'm seeing lots of people having a more detailed thyroid blood test done. Ask my GP who said no it isn't worth it has T3 goes up and down so wouldn't get a reliable reading. Not even sure what T3 is (I'm new to it all) feel like banging my head against the wall as I'm getting no where, I can demand from my GP but what should I be asking for? Would have thought that a more detailed test would be done what with my thyroid issue already (which she has referred me to ENT who have said it needs to be removed, whole thyroid) for some one could help me and explain the bloods to me and point me in the right direction. As going to my GP with no knowledge gives her more reason to dismiss me 😔
