I have had syptoms for years but didn't know it - have had several blood tests for thyroid which showed nothing.
I had brittle hair and saw a speciaist about it who said it was due to stress as he couldn't find anything else. It fell out in handfuls when i brushed or washed it, still does but not to the same extent.
I put on lots of weight and found it hard to lose it through dieting and excercise, I've had numbness in my fingers on and off but thought it was more to do with my job. I also felt this was the case with the tiredness - I get up at half 4 every morning and do a physical job. But when I started the job I never had a problem with the early starts - it was only the past 18 months or so.
And finally I had chest pains which sent me to the doctor again (I'm only 28) and he diagnosed my Hypothyroidism. My TSH levels were 6.2
It is now 2.51 and I'm on 75mcg levothyroxine and have been fine for the last few months.
However, I have recently begun to feel extremely tired and drained again - my doctor says my levels are normal but I can't explain why I still feel like this.
My doctor won't refer me to a specialist because my levels are showing as normal.
Has anyone got any advice for me?
