After years of suffering from the following symptoms:
Chronic tiredness (have been known to be bed ridden for a day if don't eat regularly)
weight gain (3 stone in 2 years)
feeling cold (White toes & Hands)
hoarse voice (always being asked if I have a sore throat!)
irregular & heavy menstruation
I finally persuaded the doctor to give me a Blood count and Thyroid test of which I got the results today, everything was fine exept my TSH levels show as 5.
Doctor has confirmed I'm borderline Hypothyroid (she suspects I've been going downhill for a while from my history) and would like to get me re-tested in 3 months time.
I'm moving in a couple of weeks so will be changing doctors.
What can I do to help myself in the meantime, what tests are best to request when I get retested?? What's best to get the doctor to take me seriously??
I'd really like to get my energy back and feel well again!!
Thanks for your help.
