I'm a 17 year old and recently I went to my GP because I had laryngitis. While I was there I told him about how I have been having strange symptoms for months- I'm very tired all the time, my appetite is almost non existent, I'm having trouble concentrating, my skin is dry and I always have a feeling of general sickness. He told me to come back for blood tests and when the tests came back my TSH levels were slightly elevated. Having read about hypothyroidism and seeing how accurately it described how I felt, I was actually happy something showed up because I thought I was going crazy! At least now I had an answer and hopefully I can get treated and feel a bit better. But my doctor then said he's not worried about the results and that I'm too young for the medication anyways. I was upset and never got to ask any questions. This really does impact my life- I'm too tired and/or sick to go out with friends, and I have exams next week but my brain is so foggy and I've been out of school the past two weeks because of the fatigue- I'm worried about failing! I never had trouble in school before and I feel like the last year or so of my life has been ruined by this. The doctor asked me to come back for more bloods in the future(can't remember if he said when-the brain fog!!!) to see if the TSH levels change. I don't know where to go from here- I understand he might not think it's severe enough to put me on lifelong medication but I don't know how I can keep going like this. Should I see another doctor? Any help is appreciated.
Edit- just to point out the severity of the fatigue- walking up the stairs gives me heart palpations and I need to catch my breath, and exercises I did regularly without problems make me almost pass out . I'm a healthy weight for my height and I played sport for my country during my early teens
