I suspected for many years that I had a thryroid problem. I would go to the doctor, tell them of my symptoms and the blood test would come back normal. My doctors told me I was just fat and needed to lose weight. Finally, after a lot of research, I convinced my doctor to put me on synthroid becasue my TSH was at 3.5. She reluctantly did so, I still didn't feel great but felt like I was doing better. I moved and my new doctor ran more tests, this time they checked my antibodies and yes there was a problem but my TSH still low. I finally got an endo appt and he wondered why I would want to be on synthroid if my TSH was only 3 (latest TSH level) then he read my chart and realized I was already on synthroid. Long story short (sorry, I ramble), I'm feeling even worse for months, my doctors just tell me to lose weight then do another TSH check and now my TSH is 9. When do I get to feel normal? When do I not feel like sleeping 12 hours a day? When do I wake up feeling like I even slept? When do I get to have a memory and not feel like I'm walking around in a daze?
