So around 7 years ago I suddenly put on about 7 stone, out of no where! I've been to my GP several times and pretty much been told to eat less and exercise more as my bloods were normal. He is extrmemely dismissive when I questioned my thyroid before.
I have recently been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder & have to have blood tests to check my liver etc.
Whilst having my blood test with the practice nurse he asked how I was feeling, I told him pretty crap to be honest and explained my symptoms, he added on to test for vitamin D & iron. We then began discussing thyroid. I said that it had been tested before and i was told it was 'normal' he raised his eyebrows and said that it's being checked again.
I then came home and looked on the thyroid uk website at symptoms. I tick almost every box!
huge weight gain.
Urine high protein
Hair falling out
Low horse voice
Grandad and aunt both had underactive
Achey body (joints muscles)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Boils & spots
Balance problems (sometimes stumble suddenly when standing still)
Memory loss & confusion

My symptoms are getting worse. I did loose weight not long ago however I was in rehab and spent 2 hours a day in the gym, then would swim and do exercise classes as well. However then going back to work I put all the weight back on despite eating the same!
I don't know what to do!
