Still feeling unwell I went back to the doctors in September and had further thyroid blood tests and a blood cortisol test.
March 2017 TSH 2.75 (0.4-5.0) FT4 16 (9-25)
Sept 2017 TSH 3.54 (0.4-5.0) FT4 14.9 (9-25)
Blood Cortisol 437 (166-507)
I got the same reaction from my GP as I did in March that the results were within normal range.
I decided to use Blue Horizon to get my thyroid retested along with Vitamin B12, D and antibodies as well as a cortisol saliva test.
I struggled getting blood out with the finger prick test and it was mid morning before I succeeded. I was surprised that The TSH result was lower than previously. Maybe this is because the GP ones were done at 8.30am.

I just feel cold and tired all the time and sleep makes no difference. I have so many hypothyroid symptoms.
Any feedback from these results would be very welcomed.
