Hi everyone, I have just joined this forum. I have been seeing my GP off and on for the last 5 years with tiredness, this occurred following my pregnancy (it took me ages to get pregnant and been trying ever since with no joy). I think I have all the symptoms of hypothyroid - extreme tiredness, weight gain, freezing cold all of the time and hairloss. I also have muscle weakness in my arms and hands especially on waking and pain all over my body when I wake. My Dr is not taking me seriously although I have been tested for TSH which was normal, they are refusing to do any other thyroid tests as 'this is the one they do'. They keep trying to convince me that I am depressed and that is what is causing all of these symptoms, I do feel down but that is because physically I feel so bad. I have just changed jobs as my previous job was very stressful but I am finding it hard to work at all at the moment.
I have just order the cortisol and thyroid tests from Blue Horizon.
I was diagnosed with Vit D deficiency and anaemia after I had my daughter but that all seems to be sorted now.
Is there anything else I can be doing at the moment?
Thanks in advance for your help!
