Customer Question

I have some considerable time experienced a number of symptoms associated with hypothyroidism. Puffy eyes getting worse, eyebrow loss, coldness, very dry skin and hair, constant tiredness, gradual weight gain (unusual for me)depression and more, also fibromyalgia which I believe can be connected. Anyway, usual T3 TSH and T4 results within normal range I'm told though I appear to have some thyroid antibodies. A physician agreed to refer me to an endocrinologist to investigate further but I got a rather dismissive response back from her to effect that as these results fine, wouldn't see me and "hope you feel better soon". I now am too exhausted to work and enjoy life though blood count etc fine. My father had a goitre and was treated for hypothyroidism. Where from here, Frustrated and as now not fit to work cos too tired and sore etc, cant afford to go privately.
