How do i ask for a thyroid test?

Hi All

Im new to this forum, i dont even know where to start. Im currently sat in my doctors waiting room trying to psych myself up to plead my case to have my thyroid tested. Since the age of 4 I've had a consistent wait issue and been told that I'm just fat and need to eat less and lose weight. Theres never been a time that i have been to the doctors where they haven't blamed my weight for the issue. The frustration for me comes from never really being heard. Ive had generic blood tests where ive been told theres no issue with my thyroid except my symptoms seem consistent with an underactive thyroid. Does anyone have any advice with how to move forward?
