Hi all, right I expect this will be a little different as I'm not the sufferer so bear with me!!
My wife has an under active thyroid, I knew about it from the day we met and it's never really been an issue. Blood tests and medication (levotheroxin ( or however it's spelt!!)) have kinda kept on top of it, but the last 12 months it just doesn't seem to be helping, the last blood test the dr actually lowered her daily dose. The tiredness and lack of enthusiasm for anything I think is probably the biggest issue as even after being in bed for days at a time she's no better and I'm afraid on a probably slightly selfish note it's having a knock on effect on me & our relationship. I don't quite know what to do, is it worth getting her to do a private test to confirm what the drs have said as every time I try and get her to go back I just get 'I've had one, I'm just hassling them...' or is there another route to see if there's a better solution??
We haven't been married quite 12 moths yet and I want to try and get on top of this so we can actually start living a bit of a life together rather than spending so much time apart.
Hope this makes sense, and all help (and listening ears!!!) are much appreciated.
