Greetings from a 'newbie', been following posts since nurse friend suggested that my symptoms might well indicate low thyroid functioning, and realise just how many of the symptoms fit! To be honest, I'm struggling to take in what seems extremely complex info (tho brain fog one of my issues!) , and concerned by the difficulties u guys have clearly faced in getting an accurate diagnosis and the medication u need. A test some years ago was 'lower end of the normal range'. Would anyone be kind enough to suggest a simple guide to what might be appropriate to ask my GP for on my first visit to get the ball rolling..? And also what to say to be persuasive should I encounter any resistance? Generally have found my GP to be heloful when I seem to know what I'm talking about. Would be really grateful for guidance. Thanks.
