I really need some advice. I have had a thyroid test which has come back as "normal" at 2.99. I am told by the doctor's receptionist that this is the TSH test - and that the FT4/FT3/TPO/TgAb tests have not been done? From being a really energetic, go-getting 40 something, I am now reduced to being tired all the time. I put on weight without eating. I have lost half my hair. My nails are brittle. My skin is very dry. I have digestive problems (which I am now beginning to manage naturally), chronic inflammation of my ribs, non-specific muscle aches and pains and depression. Everyone is putting it down to "being menopausal" but I cannot believe that this is normal. I need to find a natural cure if I can. Any advice is gratefully received.
