Hello Everyone, I could really do with some advice/opinions here.
In a nutshell, My health is a complete and utter mess. Both mentally and physically.
General Anxiety disorder & depression symptoms
Extreme fatigue ( I have no idea how I managed to finish this university semester)
Fluctuating weight gain and loss... Basically as thyroid sufferers you understand the general gist of all my symptoms.
Researching all these symptoms online made me come across Thyroid related issues which shocked me as I fitted them to a T. So I went to my GP To get a FBC and Thyroid test. My Serum Folate was low so I have started treatment. My other results are as follows
Initially they only tested TSH which came back as 3.9. But I managed to get my GP to boom me in for a more in depth thyroid test and the second TSH test came back as 4.1 (Range 0.4-5.50).
So basically the doctors think these are normal???? Can this be right?
I have been to visit two GP's who instantly wanted to dismiss any thyroid problem and give me a shed load of antidepressants like they're going out of fashion. I'm due to see another GP who from experience is more helpful. Maybe he will try me out on some thyroid medication to see if it helps?
Anyone have any advice for me?
