I was diagnosed with Hashimotos back in December last year, that was after years of feeling ill and being told that thyroid levels were borderline with no action to be taken. It was only because my sister (who was diagnosed with the same thing 2 years previous) told me to request an antibody test that i was finally diagnosed (antibodies were off the scale). I have been on 100 mcg Levothyroxine since the diagnosis and although after a couple of months i started to feel a bit better, i still haven't managed to shake of the extreme fatigue and aching joints. The last bloods my GP did showed that TSH had gone right down but T4 keeps rising. The GP said this indicates going into Hyperthyroidism however i'm certainly feeling no effects of 'hyper' whatsoever.
Last week i ended up having to have 4 days off work, i was completely wiped out and had been having discomfort in my stomach for a couple of weeks. A new GP did all kinds of tests (B12, Vit D, Liver, Lupus tests etc) however when i called the receptionist for the results yesterday, she said they are all normal!
I've always been so active and i really can't get to grips what's going on in my own body and getting to a point that i don't want to be around people because i don't want them thinking 'she must be an hypochondriac, she's always ill'!
Someone please tell me i'm not alone!! :o(
