I've been feeling awful for ages, went to the GP Monday who said it was related to my hypothyroidism which I said was news to me as I've never had a thyroid problem - apparently it was diagnosed in 2004 but my then GP didn't inform me and it's been sitting on my medical records ever since. Since then I've been trying to find out more about the condition, but I'm finding it hard to take everything in as my memory and concentration don't really co-operate with me, so please forgive me if I'm repeating what others have asked.
I went for a blood test this morning, and my GP called me this afternoon with partial results (how's that for service?!) I'll be able to pick up a prescription tomorrow for 150mcg of thyroxine - does this sound a lot? I'm just curious as I've read threads on here with people saying that they started on 25mcg.
My full results will be back Fri - should I ask my GP for a full breakdown of the TSH, T3 and T4 results, or is that just for him to deal with? Also, I was wondering if anyone thought it would be a good idea to ask for a referral to an endocrinologist as I have also experienced menstrual problems, although I now understand this can be related to hypothyroidism.
I would welcome any advice. Many thanks.
