I need some advice as my Doctor's surgery applied for a medical exemption certificate for me but it's come back requiring more information. The GP didn't complete part one of the form and they didn't stamp it. According to the medical exemption list criteria, what should hypothyroidism be 'ticked' as?
Have been on 50mcg levothyroxine for 2 weeks after 12 weeks of 25mcg levothyroxine and still feeling awful.
Completely new to this and was an energetic, physically and mentally fit 26 year old, and have been chronically exhausted and other symptoms for months now with no improvement. Just want to feel like me again and be capable of returning back to normal activities and not having to sleep for hours on end in the evenings.
Serum free TSH is 10 miu/L (0.25-5.00) and serum free T4 level is 16.3 pmol/L (9.0-23.0) on latest bloods. I literally have no idea what any of this means as the doctor hasn't spent more than 90 seconds explaining it to me. I've learnt more from this forum than from my GP.
Any help and advice is appreciated.
