I'm a twenty year old female who's been struggling to cope with an underactive thyroid for about a year. I'm in my final year at univeristy and I've never found it so difficult to do anything! The list of symptoms I suffer from is endless.
My medication still isn't right, the amount of levo i take changes regularly and I have blood tests every few months and I have to see a specialist ( an endo I think) in April about lumps on my throat
I've had to admit defeat and ask for extensions for my deadlines :/ but I have to get a doctors note about this illness and so on, but I've never had to get one before, what do you ask for? Will doctors give out notes about thyroid conditions? And I worry that my univeristy won't see that an underactive thyroid is an actuall illness?
Any help appreciated!
