Hi there. I am new here. I have been feeling very unwell for 3/4 months. Constantly lightheaded, faint, headaches, anxious, heart palpitations and lots of hair loss. After the 4th GP visit, I have now been prescribed 50 mg Levothyroxine off the back of my latest blood test. Unfortunately the GP I saw today seemed reluctant to actually explain my results and what is the matter. She said that the thyroid will be affecting my hair and that my TSH is working in overdrive which will be making me feel the way I am. I said I needed to understand what my results show to which she replied don't worry. Then when I insisted she referred me to patient.co.uk and wrote down Hypothyroidism. Now I have done some research, it appears my symptoms all scream overactive thyroid but I seem to be being treated for an underactive thyroid. All I know is my T4 was normal but the TSH was high. Can someone please help as I am at my wits end with GP visits and being given little or no information as to what is wrong with me. She seemed irritated I had asked
