I have just had a GP appt due to extreme fatigue, exercise intolerance, fibromyalgia, dry flaking skin, palpitations and weakness. It is affecting my quality of life. I have a stressful office job, look after my elderly mother and run a home and generally feel so run down a lot of the time. Emotionally I feel less able to cope and have had some minor panic attacks.
I hope I have inserted my most recent results taken at 7.45am (fasting) ok!
I am on spatone and iron from the health food shop (20mg). I take B12 spray and gluten free. My GP said all these results were fine but is testing me for coeliac (despite my best efforts to say I have Hashimotos and could I have a trial of thyroxine). I have extremely high thyroid antibodies and serum thyroglobulin has been elevated.
Why do so many of us sufferers end up banging our heads against brick walls?! I even have private health care but GP doesn't think any referral necessary. I am on no medication.
Thank you so much in advance to anyone who might have any comment about being hypothyroid and if I should self medicate?
