Autoimmune Thyroid Disorders Suck! User Group
thyroid results but all low thyroid symptoms
About This Group:

Let's face it; living with thyroid disorders (autoimmune or not) can completely suck! And nobody knows this or truly understands it unless they go through it. This group was created for those who experience the numerous trying symptoms that the thyroid/immune system can throw at us, so we can empathize with one another, and/or share a few tips and tricks to cope.

hi, my doc wrote to me in Jan to say my results were normal. I was devasted as I still felt really ill and thought she was telling me to go away. I went to see her and said "the results may be normal but I still feel terrible, what happens next?" She asked me about my symptoms and increased my dose.

So do make an appointment and go and talk to them - they shoild be treating you on not just what the blood tests say but also how you feel. that's good practice. If they don't do that then you can always get another doctor.


In fact she also confirmed that my results at that time weren't quite normal, they were slighly out but just a tiny bit. I just had a new set of tests done and I am now absolutely in the normal range. I feel better but still a bit rough. So my doctor has  increased my meds again and also referred me to a specialist (so far I've just been seeing my GP) for more tests and to see whether any other treatment might be better for me.

Your symptoms certainly sound like your thyroid is not right and any good doctor should recognise that and hopefully help you. If you don't have a doctor that is sympathetic then I really encourage you to look for another one. Lots of people on here have horror stories of doctors who are not very good but equally there are great doctors out there.

good luck!
