I suffer from pretty much every symptom of Hypothyroidism listed on the NHS website. Sensitivity to cold, weight gain, muscle cramps, irregular/heavy periods. The list goes on. I also have an increasingly appaling memory, though I'm not sure they're linked. I'm 32 and my mother is also Hypothyroid. I had my thyroid tested a couple of years ago and was told results were normal and that was that, so I've just been getting on with it since but it's making me miserable now. I'm exhausted and irritable all the time and its just sucking the life out of me. I decided to have my blood tested again by a private company. I've since got the results back but can't really make sense of them. They suggested I see my own gp given that my thyroid antibodies are high, even though the thyroid itself seems normal. Suggesting an auto immune thyroid condition. My gp however shrugged it off and said no, all is well. I'd be eternally grateful if anyone could look at these results for me and see if there's anything at all to indicate thyroid, or if this is just the way I am for some reason or something else is causing it. Thanks so much!
