I'm at a bit of a loss. I have asked my GP if I could get all thyroid tests done but she said "no, the NHS doesn't offer them" there is alot of family medical history with thyroid related illnesses but they don't even want to hear it. At the moment I carry a diagnosis of depression and anxiety, with symptoms such as chronic fatigue, shakiness, forgetfulness, mind fog I also have alcohol intolerance (or so we think as it makes me sick for days). My Ft4 is at 12 (range 9-22) and tsh is 1.14 (range 0.35-5) as these sit in the "normal" range they won't look any further completely disregarding symptoms and family history. I know that my thyroid could have a lot to answer for, if ALL tests once assessed show no irregularities then I cam find other ways to deal with my symptoms, but my GPs just won't do it stating that all the other symptoms I exhibit must be due to depression and anxiety. I'm at the point that I'm looking for private thyroid tests and specialist endocrinologists. Can anybody please share their experience and advise on how to get this properly looked at please?
Thanks all in advance xx
