I do hope someone can help. I have a 12 yr old son who has had problems all of his life, he has been tested for everything. On a day to day basis he is O.K (not sure if he has just learnt to adapt). He had another dizzy, sicky turn on Friday, because he looked deathly I took his temperature and it was 93 f, his finger tips were numb. This particular problem has been going on for a year now and his education has rearly suffered. When he was born even though he was breast fed he would put on a 1lb a week and has always been on the 99th centile, his thyroid was tested but came back normal. I took him to a &e yesterday because his
temp dipped again and asked them to test his thyroid again and it all came back normal again including liver and kidney function. He is tired most of the time and find everything hard work but his general health on a day to day basis is o.k. I would say his hair and skin isn't the softest but it isn't to dry either. We have a very strong history of thyroid problems on both mine and my husbands side. Could his problems be thyroid related and if so how do we get the appropriate tests? G.p has refused saying the labs won't do them.
