Hi All, I had a blood test 2 weeks ago as for about 2 years now I have been in very low mood, constantly tired, put on 3 stone in weight and most recently had to have carpal tunnel surgery. I know nothing about this, but the nurse gave me my results and said to make an appointment to see the Doctor as "you have an underactiove thryoid". My blood test reading was 7.5 and the nurse said the normal was 3.5. I have been to see my Doctors today and she said I havent got underactive thryoid unless my reading reaches 10.0 but agreed the norma was 3.5-4.5?? All my symptons fit and I was so relieved with what the nurse initially told me as I thought I had finally found "an answer" . I am now back at square one. Doctor said to come back for another blood test in december! I am a 41 year old female, apart from the above, otherwise healthy. Any help/advise would be great, thanks
