Hi, I wonder if someone could please advise me on the following.
When I was 10 years old I got diagnosed with underactive and enlarged thyroid.
I was on medication for 11 years then I moved countries and was told by GP there was nothing wrong with my thyroid except being enlarged, it worked normally according to the blood tests.
I’ve put up with the fatigue,cold,constipation,brain fog for more than 10years.
In the last 5 months I’ve had swallowing issues, choking on food and burning mouth syndrome(my mouth and tongue are constantly burning).
I had blood tests and again all coming back normal. I wasn’t offered scan or ultrasound on my neck , no ENT.
I was told I had acid reflux and I’ve been on omeprazole for over a month but I still have all the symptoms.
I never smoked,I don’t drink alcohol.
I was told in the past that each country has different guidelines when to start treating someone for thyroid issues.
I’m now wondering whether I should pay privately for more detailed blood test and a scan on my neck?
Sorry it’s so long and thanks for reading.
