I went to the GP with the results I've put below, and told him the following symptoms: have been very tired, have trouble with my weight, periods, dry skin, forgetfulness, slow thoughts, muscle cramps and get cold very.
He said that while I have all the symptoms and the t3 and t4 are off, that because my tsh is normal he won't treat me unless my tsh gets higher. He also said that they only test tsh and that if he started me on treatment it would give me cardiac problems. I also asked why my tsh was normal but the other hormones were low and he didn't have an answer... useless
I was thinking of trying myself with levo to see if I get any improvements because the doctor was really uninterested. Can anybody suggest places they trust? as I'm finding it really hard to find as I know it's prescription only in U.K.
Also do you think a private doctor would be better than an NHS gp in helping me?
