I have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, but having done a blood test (twice) at the GPs office, it has shown as within range (not sure what they measure). However, the symptoms are getting worse, particularly cold intolerance and dry skin. My mother has hypothyroidism and gets prescribed levothyroxine. She left some medication behind recently and I thought I would take them over a small period of time to notice if there are any improvements - there was an overall alleviation of the symptoms. However, I can't get the medicine prescribed and so continue to suffer with no easy means to obtain it. Has anyone been in a similar situation and if so, how did you get a hold of some medication? Thanks in advance.
