Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated please
The situation is - I am in my late twenties, and 2 years or so ago I developed pretty bad skin (I'd been very lucky as a teenager and missed out) and slowly put on weight. Granted, my exercise levels dropped when I graduated etc. I am always tired, despite how much sleep I get, and just generally feel lethargic and blurgh.
In the last 2 months or so I have taken up running (training for a half marathon) and a weekly fitness class. I have cut down on all rubbish foods, and probably only consume 900 or so calories on your average day, in an attempt to lose weight - which doesn't seem to budge despite everything I'm trying.
My mother has had Thyroid problems and has been on medication for 8 years or so, and my grandmother has just been diagnosed too.
So, I think it's quite likely (although it would be good to hear your thoughts) I have a problem too. Trouble is - I have suspected this for a while and been to the doctors for bloods, but they all come back as 'normal'. The doctors are pretty dismissive (I think I've seen two separate doctors and had much the same response).
Is there anything else I can do to help it/ask for different tests/try and see a different doctor (I'm in Devon, UK)?
Any help would be very gratefully received,
