I have always struggled with tiredness and feeling dizzy. When I was around 17 years old I was told my thyroid was slightly under active but the doctor never did anything about it and told me it was nothing to worry about. I spent years going to the doctors as I always felt ill but was always told that they couldn't see anything wrong with me and didn't realise what hypothyroidism was so never questioned the original diagnosis.
I had blood tests again at the age of 28 and was told I had hypothyroidism and was put on thyroxine. I have been on it now for a couple of years but still feel tired and dizzy. I was under the impression that if your thyroid levels were coming back as normal when taking thyroxine for two years that the symptoms should have gone away. I've been to the doctors again explaining that I still feel unwell but they don't know what's wrong with me and say its nothing serious. I also came off the pill last year and have felt even worse since with nausea, acne and the dizziness sometimes effects my eyes. I have recently been told I have PCOS and high LH levels and I think the pill has been masking this. I have a basal body temperature of 34 degrees too.
Is it still possible to have the tiredness and dizziness even when your thyroid levels are normal? Could having this condition but being untreated for so long mean it takes more than two years to feel better? I know nobody here is a doctor but my GP isn't helping at the moment so i'm wondering if anyone else has similar problems. I'm thinking of changing doctors to get a second opinion because i'm fed up of feeling ill all the time and i'm such a happy positive person normally so nobody takes me seriously.
