Last year was quite possibly the worst year of my life. Eventually after months of going back and forth to the GP I was referred to an Endo who diagnosed sub clinical hypothyroidism and prescribed 75microgrames levothyroxine and then promptly washed his hands of me and discharged me back to my GP. The Levo helps - at least now I can actually get out of bed 99% of the time (before 'diagnosis' I could bearly get from my bed to the bedroom door on most days!) but I still don't feel well. I have sleep disturbance. My body aches most of the time. I am 42 but walk like a 90 year old. I am constantly cold. I have major difficulty concentrating and suffer 'brain fog' to the extent that it affects my work. I suffer stomach 'issues'. And suffer from low moods.
My GP only tests tsh and refuses to up my dosage as my results are now "in the normal range".
I need help. I can not go on like this. Are there other tests I should be asking for? Could this be cfs - a friend suggested I seem to exhibit symptoms of this condition. What can I do to help myself? Are there any over the counter supplements I could try? Finally is there a specialist in the South Wales area (private or nhs) that anyone can recommend?
Any and all assistance would be gratefully received.
