Having fallen out with my GP on doing a TSH blood test only, and only on 50mcg Levothyroxin, he wrote to me asking me to have various blood tests, to find out why I felt tired, fatigued, cold all the time, nails crumbling, aching joints etc etc....had blood tests last week and went today to get the results. Amazingly he increased my Levothyroxin to 75mcg (already started taking 75mcg) he apparently had asked colleagues at a Surgery meeting on there thoughts (getting cross with GP actually works) so happy with that... also my ferritin levels were very low (19) so now on 3 iron tablets a day, and due to take urine sample to surgery so that he can rule out gastrointestinal bleeding.....have had stomach problems in the past. All in all I am a very happy bunny, and expecting fantastic results.....my Husband is expecting me to jump of the wardrobe.....will keep everything crossed that this is the answer. Will keep you posted......
