I went to see Dr S the first week of Jan and he confirmed that I have all the classic signs of underactive thyroid. Like a lot of you I have been suffering for many years and remained undiagnosed until I came across this forum before Christmas. Dr S put me on a graduated dose of levothyroxine and I am now up to a daily dose of 100mcg. It has made my symptoms considerably worse and I now have new symptoms to cope with as well eg continual memory loss, constant drunk feeling, insomnia, hands like ice, hard to concentrate, spaced out feeling etc.
I'm not sure what to expect when I see Dr S next week and whether I'm supposed to be getting my own blood tests done before I see him or not? I had to go private in Jan as my GP would only test for TSH last year and as my blood test came back normal she refused to do anything more for me saying there was no clinical need.
This is a fantastic forum and I thank you all so much for helping me and each other.
