Hello all. I have posted here before but not given my levels.
This is what I have
Free t4 14.5 range 10.3__22.7
Tsh 3.22 range 0.35___5.50
I have been back to gp to ask for a slight raise in levo, still within range but to try and counteract the terrible mind zapping tiredness I still have by the end of each day.
I have asked before, they have all said no and told me to have another blood test. Everything has come back normal.
Today the gp said that if I had just described what was wrong with me she would have referred me to a chronic fatigue clinic. She also said that a study 2 years ago has proven that people with hypothyroidism feel better with a more raised tsh. She absolutely refused to do anything more.
I asked to see an endocrinologist. She asked if I meant privately. I said no. So she said no. I asked if that meant i couldn't see anyone else and she said that i had to see yet another gp at the practice. I am going around in circles.
In a lot of ways its worse than before I was diagnosed. Then I was content to watch tv, eat and go back to bed. I didn't want anything, didn't need anything other than my dinner and an undemanding book and thought this is my life until I die. Now its like I've been given a glimpse of what life might be like and told I can only have it for 2 days a week. It so many ways it was easier before.
If some of you very knowledgeable people can have a look I would be grateful. I have no other thyroid specific tests, been told they are not needed. Likewise ferritin. If you all think that my gp is right I will go down the cfs route. They are all so convinced that my levels are in normal range so its not my thyroid thats a problem. As all my other tests are likewise fine it must be cfs. So very fed up.
Thanks all for reading.
