I started feeling reeling unwell last June and was at the Doctors constantly. I eventually asked her in the November to check my Thyroid as everyone in my family has an under active thyroid. Her response was, I only checked it in March!! I demanded she humour me and check it again. By then my thyroid had become inflamed and flipped to an over-active state. So I had to wait until January to see a Doctor at the Hospital and then wait on those results. February they finally started me on 100 micrograms of Levothyroxine. I was told to visit nurse 6 weeks after starting for my blood to be taken. Now I know through family that they are checking if you need to up or not the dose. In March I called to speak to a Dr as I had heard nothing. I was told my bloods were normal and make an appointment in a years time to get them done again!! I still have all the symptoms and my wait is still (slowly) going up. I am soo depressed it is affecting my whole life. I have no clue what you are all talking about T3 T4 nothing has been explained to me and I am not a "silly young lass" but stupidly believe the Doctors know what they are doing. I just want to feel better.
