Hi I am new and posting on behalf of 11 year old daughter who has Hashimotos diagnosed very recently (Nov 2017). She takes 50mcg Levothyroxine moved up from 25mcg Levothyroxine. Her endocrine consultant has written in a clinic letter that she is very symptomatic despite normal thyroid levels so I am left wondering if our family GP should be looking into the cause/s of these symptoms? She is short of breath, her legs are swollen, she can't feel her hands and feet, she is confused, she has trouble moving her legs, she "hurts everywhere", stool very hard, her tummy hurts and she feels sick, her tongue is smooth and beefy and red with sores on it, her lips are chapped and flaky, her eyes are watery and bloodshot, spots all over her body, she can't sleep at night, she cannot focus or concentrate, she is tired most of the day, she has lost weight, she doesn't feel like eating some days, very irritable.
Advice appreciated, thank you in advance for any help anyone can give.
