I am 36, diagnosed Hypo 2009 after first child. Been on 100mcg Levo for years. Never seen an endo. I know I had antibodies done at first diagnosis and was told they were positive but I was told nothing more about it and I did not know what to ask. Just had my annual blood test and the results were OK. I really expected them to show I needed a dose change because I feel so rough.
Not got ranges as I was given them over the phone but the ranges from tests last April were TSH 0.4-5.5 (mine was 0.09)
T4 11-26 (mine was 20)
T3 3-6 (mine was 4.8)
I imagine the same lab this time.
Nothing else was tested this time although last April they did full blood count, Feritin, Vit D and glucose - all OK other than vit D was borderline but summer was coming so GP not concerned. I think B12 and folate have been done in the past.
I think if I go back to the GP they will think I am a moaning hypochondriac since my bloods were good but I am constantly cold (especially my feet), Irritable, enlarged tongue, terrible memory (most worrying - forgot to fetch my son yesterday), my hips hurt, dry eyes, fatigue, insomnia (which I have never had before), bad skin and gaining weight (granted I am not exercising or eating very well because I have not got the energy).
Also having abdominal pain and occasional diarrhea, been tested for coeliac and had ultrasound with no problems. They are reluctant to send cameras in because I had them a couple of years OK and nothing was found.
Do my symptoms sound Hypo or do they indicate something else? I need the confidence to go back to the GP without them thinking I am wasting their time. Or is there something I could try myself?
