I have recently been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism which I had to get done privately as my current GP practice seem not to listen to anything I say. I have a lot of symptoms which worry me and one of these is problems with my feet. They feel tingly, cold and are getting painful when I try to walk for more than about half a mile. I have been trying to explore the possibility of this being down to a B12 deficiency but that is not going well with the GP practice. I'm just wondering if any other people have problems with their feet that might be down to Hypothyroidism. The GP practice finally agreed to start treating my Hypothyroidism they only started me on 25mcg of Levothyroxine which I have been on for about a month with no improvement in any symptoms during that time.
I have an appointment with the GP on Monday so just had a blood test done. The results are below:
Thyroid function test
Serum TSH level 2.06 mu/L [0.35 - 4.94]
Serum free T4 level 13.2 pmol/L [9.0 - 19.0]
I want to be prepared for this GP appointment and am hoping she can at least increase the medication to 50mcg what could I say to get her to agree to this please.
Also if anyone has any ideas on the problems with my feet that would be appreciated. Thanks so much in advance for reading.
