Hi all, this is my first time at HealthBoards and I'm not sure whether to be glad I found it or not. This is scary stuff! I have been feeling exhausted "all" the time lately and even though I am excercising I am still gaining weight. I am also on blood pressure medicine for approximately 1 year now, it is keeping it controlled very well.
My Dr. decided to run TSH blood work to make sure everything is ok, the results are 4.927 within a range of .35 to 5.5. Because I am at the upper end of the range, she is offering to send me to an endocrinologist. After reading quite a few of these threads, I'm not so sure that exhausted isn't better than the side effects I'm reading about from the meds.
Can I get an opinion? Are my results high enough to go to an endo? Is there anyone that has had "good" results with small doses of meds?
Thank you for any feedback you can give me.
