    Blood test to diagnose Hun,

    I'm off for one today will be my first one since finding out I'm pregnant but about my 5th blood test.

    My first test I was 0.2 off of the treatment scale so I had to suffer 3 more months until they would test again and in that time it had gone up 0.4 so they treated me xx

    I was extremely tired to the point I was scared to drive, and I couldn't lose weight no matter how hard I tried. They have been treated me for depression yet as soon as I started the Levo I haven't needed the anti ds anymore.

    My mum was to the point where the doc wanted to section her cos they thought she was severely depressed was only when they got the bloods back they realised what was wrong, so she begged me to get checked.

    I have had an underactive thyroid for 10 years and on thyroxine. Symptoms were tiredness and lethergy, dry skin, hair went fine and was losing strands at a time and the most obvious one was feeling cold all the time or sensitive to temperature.
