Thanks for all the info and support I now have a referral to an endocrinologist and my dose increased

Just to say I have found this forum invaluable, having just started on my hypo journey. Thanks to all the information and answers, I've been able to get my GP to increase my Levothyroxine to 50mcg based on my symptoms. And she is somewhat reluctantly referring me to an endocrinologist. I still have no blood testing for FT3 or anti-bodies (lab won't do it even though I've had a scan confirming thyroiditis). But at least things are moving forward (even of my symptoms aren't quite yet). Thanks.
