I'm not currently on any medication and have yet to be diagnosed on the NHS due to some very bad luck. I am hopefully going to get diagnosed via an NHS blood test this month but would like some advice before my GP puts me straight onto levothyroxine as he's previously suggested he would.
My thyroid antibodies were both negative when I tested previously, so I don't know why my TSH is so high. I was thinking perhaps an ultrasound of my thyroid might show nodules or some other abnormalities.
Has anyone here been in a similar situation with negative antibodies and faced the same dilemma? I feel like I should reject the medication and ask for a referral to an endocrinologist. I am clueless as to what is causing my thyroid to behave like this, any suggestions would also be welcomed.
