Hi, I was diagnosed with under active thyroid April 11 & i was fortunate to go through Bupa. However they stopped funding when this became apoarent it was a chrinic illness. Im now back into the NHS so i dont get to see the same Consultant every time i go. I started in 50mcg & went up regularly to 175. My last appt they put me down to 150 as they said i went over range. I was at 24 & max normal range is 22 apparantly. Before i go see my consultant i have to go have a blood test the week before & as im rather difficult to have it taken i see thr same one. She always asks me other than TSH anything else i want adding on. After reading many posts recently on here by the sounds of it i shoulf be asking for other things. I suffer horrendous leg pains, cant regulate my temperature, seem to be rather cold all the time. I used to have full thick hair - that's dissapearing at a fast rate, ive stoped losing weight but really dont eat much & struggle to exercise due to my pains. Other than that i am feeling good mentally - which i havent for some time. Apologies this is rather long but i would really appreciate your help. Thank you.
