Hi everyone ,
I am incredibly frustrated and looking for some advice.After months of back and forth visits I was finally diagnosed with an under active thyroid two years ago by my gp. Since then it has been a constant fight and struggle to get my thyroid medication ever increased despite being symptomatic. Eventually I had had enough and requested to be seen privately as my prolactin levels had risen to 1600. On seeing the specialist she advised that if you are being treated for an under active thyroid the goal is to have your tsh less than 2 not the 5 that the gp had been using. Since then my levothyroxine has finally been upped from 25 to 100 in the past four months but I am still every night coming home and going straight to bed amongst other symptoms. I had asked my go to test my t3 levels but he refused and said that wasn't available on the nhs? Has anyone else had a similar experience or can offer any advice.
