Where to start..I was diagnosed as hypo 15yrs ago after the birth of my 2nd daughter after being borderline for years. I've never felt well on Levo but I have a gp who only looks at tsh.
It increased over the years from 25mcg to 125 and I still feel like pants. Over the years I've had my gallbladder removed (12yrs) I have had to have vit b12 jabs every 12 weeks, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (2yrs)then in June last year I caught a throat infection which led to the last 8 months catching one infection after another. I have lost count of the antibiotics I've had (unwillingly). Urine, breast, throat, chest! Costacondritis, pluracy. I'm sure you get the picture. Then vit d levels too low so I'm taking supplements, then folate too low so supliment that. Chest X-ray has come back normal but a liver scan from raised levels shows fatty liver. I feel desperate, I feel so unwell. Had a visit to the Gp yesterday to ask for them to find out what's going on. Nothing .. I'm just unlucky. Maybe that's the case but with no support from the Gp it's time for me to help myself. I can't and won't continue in this downward spiral. My tsh is just over 1 at the latest blood test which the Gp is happy with. I need a full range of blood tests and a sympathetic endo in South Wales but I will travel. Can any one suggest bloods or endo?
It's time to take control before I lose the energy to fight anymore
