    @skyblue that's the thing. Please dont leave it to your GP or doctor's deicision as chances are you'll never feel fit again.

    Best is to ask "Politely" for the test results for your records and from there we can monitor if the dosage is okay or you need to increase soon etc. It's usually a general practise around our GPs in NHS that they order only TSH test which is not a reliable method of determining underactive thyroid unless accompanied with FT4 and FT3.

    Hope you feel better soon and keep us updated
