Re: Can anyone answer?
So sorry you are dealing with this. You need to get your thyroid results so that you can see what they consider "normal." If my dr hadn't decided to treat me 12 years ago- tsh 5.16 with awful hypo symptoms- I would have lost the last decade of my life. I've read that they should consider patients hypothyroid when they have a tsh of 2 or greater & have symptoms. The reference range is too broad and dr.s might not treat if you fall within the range even with obvious hypo symptoms. In this case, you need to find a new dr.
I am also uninsured & have found that if I order my blood tests from an online company that has a local lab, I pay half as much as when the dr. draws the blood & sends it to the same lab (the lab bills me, not the dr & still I pay twice as much!). I can order tests that my current dr won't look at (he is only interested in the tsh), but will help me be prepared for my appointment with the next dr.
As bad as you feel, you won't feel better until you get the treatment you need. Get your results & post them with the ranges & I'm sure someone here can help guide you in the right direction
