I was diagnosed with hypthyroidism 4 years ago - though why my GP bothered, I don't know. They're reluctant to investigate my condition further despite me telling them the medication makes little difference. After some arguing, they agreed to up my Levo dose from 100mcg to 125mcg. Still no improvement, so I asked for re-tests.
My tests keep coming back in the normal range, but I know that only looking at TSH and T4 isn't enough.
I'm still gaining weight (despite exercising and watching what I eat), my brain is foggy and I'm almost always tired.
I've begun taking Supplements in the morning (I take my Levo at night) and I did see a slight improvement, but maybe that's because I felt they were my last hope.
What can I do to get my condition properly investigated? When I search for articles supporting my need for further investigations, my doctors tell me that I shouldn't use Google to self-diagnose. So I'm asking here since GPs at my surgery regularly print off patient.info articles and hand them over to usher you out quicker.
If I re-posted a full set of my test results, could somebody tell me what I need to be asking for to make me feel like life is worth living again?
