I feel like I'm coming to the end of my tether trying to cope with all these symptoms and still can't get a firm diagnosis.
In June I had some blood tests done via my GP. The symptoms which have got progressively worse over the years were things like weight gain, extreme fatigue, muscle and joint pain, hair falling out, dry skin, brittle nails.
The blood test results came back and my GP suggested borderline hypothyroidism. My TSH level was 7. He suggested that I make another appointment for blood and antibody tests in 3 months.
I had the tests last week and called for the result today. The receptionist said that the notes suggest more tests in 6 months!!!!!!!! I've made an appointment to see my doctor on Thursday to find out what the levels were.
If it's still borderline, is there any treatment at all that I can get? I'm really losing the will with feeling awful constantly
