Hi everyone. I was diagnosed in February this year after having a routine blood test. The doctor I saw was so offhand about it and made me feel like it was pretty much nothing. He literally just said " good news you get free prescriptions for life, you have an underactive thyroid" and then pretty much see you later. He didn't explain anything and just prescribed me 50mcg if thyroxine. I had to go back about a month later for something unrelated and says to him that I assume that I would need regular blood tests for a while until they were sure I was on the right dose. His answer, come back in a year! I thought this couldn't be right so after a few weeks went and saw another doctor who apologised and said I needed to be tested every six weeks until I was stable. Well I had two tests six weeks apart which apparently came back mormal. Had another booked for another six weeks then another doctor rang me and said she was cancelling my appointment and to come back in a year. Well I pretty soon started feeling rubbish again and all my original symptoms started returning so I booked another blood test. This time the nurse that took my bloods asked me why was I back and told me that all the symptoms I was displaying were down to my menopause. Rang for my results and was yokd by the receptionist that a doctor had looked at them and they were normal. This left me a bit gutted if I'm honest as I felt so rotten but a week later I was back at the surgery for something unrelated and the gp that I saw that day then tells me that my recent blood test had showed that my thyroid levels had gone wrong again snd that i needed my level of thyroxine increased. I'm now on 75mcg. Had about a month of feeling somewhere near human and then started feeling awful again. Numb hands, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and just can't stop crying. Seem to spend most of my life these days in tears. Anyway I took myself around for another blood test last week and just waiting for the result again now. Is this normal? When am I going to start feeling better? Would appreciate any advise.
