Hi, I've been experiencing extreme fatigue and lethargy for a while now, its really debilitating and my doctor has diagnosed me with 'chronic fatigue syndrome' as my TSH levels were 1.2 (range of 0.1-4.5).
I've read somewhere that TSH levels don't really tell you anything, so I've ordered a private test to test the other levels, t3, t4, etc.
I'm convinced I have an underactive thyroid, my symptoms are:
Fatigue (all the time)
Constipation (2-3 bowel movements a week despite eating a lot)
Cold feet (a lot of the time, even when im warm in bed)
Itchy patches (on my face, either side of my nose, dry and itchy)
Puffy skin on my face
Pale skin (despite 3 holidays and countless sunbeds)
I've had all routine tests for vitamins etc, but my doctor is hands-down refusing to do anything else hence why i've had to go private. Can i get anyones opinion on my symptoms and the normal TSH.
