I have only just joined this forum and am amazed at how much I have learned already. Sorry if I am repeating myself but I am not on meds but am trying to summon the confidence to go back to the gp. Briefly, I am tired to the point of tears a lot of the time, I have achy heavy limbs, dry hair (used to have to wash it every day as it was so greasy), I cry a lot and am emotional, periods usually 21 - 35 days and fairly heavy. I do have hot flushes at night but during the day I am freezing, especially hands and feet, no sex drive and pretty low with it all. I recently changed my job and now work only part time so I think my husband expected me to pick up. Tsh last year was 3.8 and free t3 was 4.5. Gp says all normal. I am 48 so she thought it was probably the menopause. Any advice on how I should approach the consultation?
