My mum used to suffer from overactive thyroid so I have always suspected that I had a thyroid problem given the problems I was having.
Well after suffering a very long list of symptoms for the past 10 years and having the occasional blood test come back normal I came across this forum about three months ago and learned that having normal blood tests doesn't mean there's nothing wrong with you. My health was deteriorating rapidly to the point that by Oct last year I had limited use of my left arm and left foot and could hardly walk. So after coming across this forum I quickly booked an appt with Dr Skinner and saw him last week. He confirmed I am most definitely hypoT with all the classic symptoms and I have been put on levothyroxine. I have never been to see an endo as my GP's (I've changed three times already) always said there was no clinical need for one.
Can someone please advise about how I go about checking my adrenals, Vit D, B12 and other levels that others have mentioned on here? Ideally I would like them done on the NHS with the support of my GP as I can ill afford to keep paying privately but I can't really see that happening given the lack of support I've had so far? Alternatively, can anyone advise on how best to approach my GP now for support since I have at last been diagnosed with hypoT?
