I've been diagnosed a year and have a constant battle with my GP over my symptoms. At first he refused to acknowledge that there was anything wrong even though I was tired all the time, extremely forgetful (even forgot my son's birthday) and joint pains. Finally got him to accept but he still said I was making up the symptoms as with the levels I had I shouldn't be getting such severe symptoms. I'm now on 75mcg of Thyroxine but I still don't feel it's enough. Although my memory has improved, I'm still tired and my arms have pins and needles in. I get migraines which I never used to get as well and have put on 2 stone in weight in a year which refuses to come off and have no sex drive whatsoever! I'm now pushing to be referred to the hospital to see an endocrinologist.
I'm only 41 but I do have a family history of diabetes but nobody before with hypothyroidism.
