Update.... I’ve just been to see my GP. He told me that as I am considered within normal limits (NHS guidelines) that he cannot run any extra tests. He has confirmed that if I get tested privately then he will look at the results, but in his opinion I am more likely to be depressed. I do have depression, but this weariness is totally different and as I am on antidepressants I can’t see how that can be the case. It was like a scene from Little Britain. He looked up my results and as they showed green then that was all he could do... in other words “computer says no!” 😢
Does hypothyroidism cause tinnitus? I have a whole list of ailments but the most annoying are tinnitus, loss of hearing and sinus headaches. Other symptoms are: swollen / sore ankles
Painful tendons and muscles
Slightly high cholesterol (5.2)
Since I had blood tests (TSH 4.25) the doctor said not thyroid but vitamin deficiency (D vit and Folate). The supplements given to me have helped a lot but my tinnitus and heating are worse. Should I ask for more detailed thyroid checks?
