I HAVE HAD AN UNDERACTIVE THYROID FOR TWO YEARS AND I TAKE 125 MLG OF THYROXINE. MY BLOODTESTS NOW SHOW NORMAL ALTHOUGH I HAVE THE SAME LOUSY SYMPTO

MS THAT I FIRST HAD AND INDEED HAVE NEVER FELT ANY BENIFIT FROM THE DRUGS. MY INTIAL BLOODTEST (2 YEARS AGO) SHOWED A SLIGHT RISE IN SOMTHING TO DO WITH MY LIVER AND THEN THIS WENT BACK TO NORMAL ON FOLLOWING BLOODTESTS. I HAVE JUST TALKED MY DOCTOR INTO ANOTHER BLOODTEST FOR MY THYROID WHICH SHOWED NORMAL EXCEPT THE LIVER PROBLEM HAS RETURNED.
ON BOTH OCCASSIONS OF THE LIVER I HAD DRUNK THE NIGHT BEFORE THE BLOODTESTS AND WONDERED IF THIS COULD HAVE EFFECTED THE RESULTS.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE NORMAL LEVELS BUT STILL FEEL THE SYMPTOMS. MY SYMPTOMS ARE TIREDNESS AND CRAMPS IN THE MUSCLES. MY SYMPTOMS GET WORSE WHEN I HAVE HAD A COLD OR I AM SUFFERING FROM STRESS.
PS MY DOCTOR DOES NOT BELIEVE THE THYROID IS CAUSING THE SYMPTOMS AND FEELS I HAVE M.E.
