Kimbo, I send you my sympathy and am so glad that you have found this site that will offer support for so many of us!

Depression and anxiety were the two main symptoms that started my battle with hypothyroidism and I know that there are many people here who will be saying the same.

Shall we start by asking what your last blood test results were? your TSH, Free T4 and if they tested it, your Free T3, have you had your B12, ferritin and folate tested, to name just a few? If you haven't got your last results then you are entitled to a copy of them, just ask at your surgery, it takes just a minute to print them off. Do ask what the reference ranges are for TSH and Free T4 as they do vary around the country.

Speak to you later, hang on in there! Best Wishes!

Your thyroid blood tests, b12, ferritin, folate are not listed, I don't know anything about the results that you have listed only that they appear to be within the ranges.
