Hi, I could really use some advice.... I have had a test for Hypothyroidism, and the TSH was 1.40, and the Dr says I am fine.... even though I have so many symptoms of it.( in one list of 39 symptoms, and I have 37 of them.) He refuses to do any other tests, or even consider the possibility that I might have it. My Mother was diagnosed with it several months ago, and her numbers were only off a little, (although she doesn't know what they are). Her Dr went ahead and put her on medication, and she said within a month, she felt alot better. I was telling her about some of the things wrong with me, and she suggested I get tested. I had never even heard of Hypothyroidism before this.My memory and concentration are almost nil, and I am so tired all the time, I can't function! The mood swings and depression are getting worse, the list of my problems are endless.
Could this be all in my head?? Or should I be searching for a new Dr?? I HATE Dr's, and have a hard time communicating my problems with them, so I have a hard time being taken seriously. And the thought of going to another new Dr is frightening!
So, I need some advice on what to do. I really appreciate any help you can give me.
