I was diagnosed as hypothyroid a few years back, and until this year have been absolutely stable with my thyroxine dose.
However, my levels this year have significantly deteriorated (coincidentally or not with the start of a new job and working stupid hours) and I was put on a higher dose.
At my last appointment, my GP said that my thyroid levels were still too low, but the blood tests show that I'm not taking my medication regularly so she won't put the dosage up. (I am taking my medication every day without fail and have been ever since I was diagnosed; she just doesn't believe me!)
So now I'm left trying to cope with the symptoms, but I can't get further help \"until I start taking my tablets\". And I think it's worse that I know exactly what is causing this exhaustion and pain that I feel.
Has anyone else had this issue, and what did you do?
