| | misdiagnosed or just nervous?
Hi People, First post, i'll try and be brief and any advice is warmly welcome.
I have felt very unwell for a long time and my doctors always put it down to depression (Lazy GP's!) and treated me for several years with AD's which always made me feel worse.
Disgruntled, i recently did some research and found i have a lot of symptoms of Hyperthyroidism (Under-weight, Sweaty, Nervousness, Anxiety, Racing Heart, Hair loss, Eye Pain, General fatigue ect.)
I went to see a private thyroid specialist, had my blood test results back last week and to my surprise i have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, the exact opposite condition.
I have been put on a small ammount of Thyroxine which will increase in time.
I know that this doctor is very experienced and probably wouldn't make a mistake like that, and i know that the symptoms of a dodgy thyroid are not cut and dry....but in your experiences could a mistake have been made? Can someone who has the symptoms of hyper really be hypo?
I'm quite suspicious of these pills cause i don't want to make my health any worse and i could do with getting well again right now.
Thanks for reading!
