Hi, I'm new to this and could not even have hypothyroidism so please bare with me! I was tested for diabetes at the doctors, came back clear however I have suspected hypothyroidism with a TSH aid 6.5. Makes sense to me as I have spent my entire life feeling exhausted. However my doctor says he needs to test my antibodies and some other bits to confirm if any treatment is required, but I was told to wait 2 months for another blood test incase it was a 'blip'. It's been a month and I am so exhausted, I am sleeping 8 hours at night and napping for 3 hours a day as I can't stay awake. It's gotten to the point where I'm sleeping on the couch so my dog isn't alone all the time! I feel like this isn't normal? Can I go back to my doctor and ask for the test now? Or is it completely necessary? He kind of made me feel silly when I said I was tired before and that he wouldn't expect any symptoms from someone with a TSH of 6.5.
Thank you for any advice!
