Hello, about 6 years ago I had a partial thyroidectomy because of a non malignant tumour on my thyroid. I had one return visit to the hospital to give me results of the biopsy but then nothing. Since then I have gradually been putting on weight ( gone from a size 12 to 16) taking a lot of vertigo attacks, been diagnosed with osteoarthritis due to my aching joints and pernicious anaemia. I can't go near the fridges in a supermarket without almost crying in pain caused by the cold air and I seem to need an afternoon nap nearly every day. I have periods of depression and in general feel rotten. I have had my bloods checked a couple of times to see if my thyroid is functioning well enough and bloods are always ok. Once again I have asked for them to be tested because over the past few months I seem to be getting worse, especially the feeling of being cold all the time. Going on Tuesday for the blood test but scared once again they will come back clear. Any advice please!
