I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid in May.i was given a prescription for 25mcg levothyroxine and sent away. I felt well on it for a while but I have been getting symptoms now for about a month. The trouble is I suffer from OCD,depression & anxiety and some of the symptoms are like those of UAT. My symptoms are: constipation, flatulance, aches, sudden bouts of losing energy, depression , loss of well being.
I saw my GP who did a blood test and the results came back 'satisfactory'. What does that mean? I asked for a read out of the results but I can't make head nor tail of it. My symptoms are still here and I feel crap mentally and physically. I'm seeing my GP again tomorrow. I didn't know that you had to have regular blood test until you are stable until I came on thyroid uk and I haven't been getting this. Just given a prescription without explaining anything. I didn't even know that I could get my prescriptions for free until I spoke to a lady at work who has diabetes and gets hers free.
