My GP diganosed me with an underactive thyroid about 2 years ago (after I asked for the test) and for about the past 6 months I've been exhausted!
I asked to have an FBC, thyroid levels checked etc. and everything came back in the "normal" range.
It is really starting to take a toll on my life! I sleep around 8 and a half hours a night and wake up feeling like I've had about 4 which doesn't put me in a good mood for work and on the weekend I would rather sleep than go out which is really bad for someone who has just turned 20!
My doctor has made me feel like a hypochondriac or that they think it's all in my head which I have seen ALOT of online so I feel better knowing it isn't just my GP.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone could suggest what to do in terms of other tests, refferals or how to cope at least as it is making me feel awful! I eat healthily and excersise regularly, I am happy on the whole apart from being so knackered ALL the time!
Thank you in advance!
