Where do I start, I have suffered with psoriasis, weight gain and struggle to lose weight, hair loss, heavy flooding and clotting with my periods until I got a hysterectomy (after fighting for 6 yrs) which I then found out I had been suffering with adenomyosis. More recently extreme tiredness, forgetting words, misplacing thing and forgetfulness, cold all the time, dry skin and nails, feet are cracked blah blah blah.
Doctor says I am stress, I am not! I work for my husband in an office, I have grown up boys who live at home and work, I have 2 wonderful bulldogs who I love and I can have time off when I need it, in fact life is good, apart from my health.
I went to my doctor as I had lumps in my neck which I found out were raised lymph nodes due to recent Psoriasis flare up, explained tiredness and was sent for full blood test TSH was 2.6 so no issues as far as he was concerned. So went to private Dr and paid for Thyroid tests, he did Free T3 & Free T4 as well as TSH, it was only 4 wks after the last one. Here are my results:
Free T3 4.6
Free T4 12.6
The private doctor has written to me and said due to normal levels there is no way my symptoms are down to my Thyroid. He wants me to go to a sleep clinic for a sleep apnea test which I am not doing.
I am lost, I feel so tired and I don't know what to do next. Judging by my results should I give up?
I was thinking of paying for Vit d & B12 tests, I have already spent £800 on private tests and appointments.
