Just wondering whether its worth forking out to see someone privately and what's the cost? My tsh levels were 100 and t4 was 4.4. I've got a new baby so I feel like complete shit. I was started in 50mcg of levothyroxine 5 days ago. Initially I was slowly gaining some energy but today I feel like I've done 10 rounds with mike Tyson. I'm also abit concerned as the only blood test I have had is a thyroid function one. My gp hasn't checked anything else which to be honest I find quite odd considering my thyroid is so low. She is seeing me again in 6 weeks and in mean time referred me for an ultrasound because my thyroid is swelled up in my neck. Is this the correct protocol or should she be more on the ball ?
