"Hypothyroid - lab results say yes, own GP says no"

About: Hampshire PCT Royal Hampshire County Hospital / Endocrinology

(as the patient),

Feeling awful for 6 years with clear symptoms of Hypothyroid.

GP says lab results are normal, and my thyroid is normal, private doctor says TSH is elevated along with antibodies, I have a visible goitre and 3 nodules confirmed by ultrasound. Now having to pay to see a endocrinologist privately.

Have lost all faith in young female doctor who told me to get on with my menopause, its normal to put on 3 stone in 1.5 years, and joining Weight Watchers might help! Ignorant, dismissive and dangerous in my opinion.
