I have been feeling ill for as long as I can remember. My symptoms: dizziness, vertigo, tired all the time, gained weight, feel cold all the time (drives hubby mad because the gas bill is huge!) severe PMT, aching bones, dry straw like hair, flaky skin, sore throat with swollen glands, hoarse voice.
I am currently having ovarian suppression (Prostap) for my severe PMT and using Oestrogel for my HRT.
I recently had a few serious dizzy spells and went to see my GP who said I had Labyrinthitis and gave me tablets. I had a blood test for Thyroid problems which I feel is closer to the mark as to what is wrong with me.
Just phoned GP for results and were told they were 'normal in range' but couldn't tell me specifics although I can get a print out if I go down there.
What next? I have a gut feeling my thyroid is making me ill but now my results are in normal range I doubt my GP will refer me or do anything else.
Should I just settle in and live with feeling ill or is going private (which I can't really afford) the only way?
