I've been diagnosed with underactive thyroid and have been prescribed levothyroxine 50mcg. I have been discharged from the NHS endocrine specialist because I wanted to see another specialist as I felt she was being very dismissive of my symptoms etc before I got my results. So now I have to wait 3 months for another specialist appointment! I have just sent off for the D102 gene test to find out if I have a faulty gene because I've read lots of horror stories of people taking levothyroxine.
I would ratherefore see a private doctor until the correct dose and medicine/medicine combination has been prescribed as things take too long with the NHS. I've put on 35kg in the last year and feeling so tired and got lots of swelling and it's only getting worse as well as having other symptoms. Need to find a private doctor asap.
