The problem is, I have horrible skin problems, my hair has not grown in 5 years, I have trouble maintaining my weight, my mood is all over the place and I can’t even get through my lectures for school without being anxious and absolutely exhausted afterwards. My doctor refuses to do any other tests because my TSH is “normal”. I am just wondering if maybe this is all in my head or a result of something else. I’ve read numerous books and listened to podcasts about my symptoms and they all line up with being hypothyroid. Has anyone else had this issue, you’re taking levo but you still feel all the symptoms of hypo? Anyone have any suggestions? I am so frustrated!
Sounds like you are a 'borderline' case. Please find a doctor who is willing to take you seriously and treat you for your symptoms. TSH alone isn't even a reliable indicator. You need them to test T3 and T4 as well. They will put you on thyroid medication to hopefully elevate your symptoms.

Thank you so much! Finding a new doctor is so frustrating sometimes but looks like it’s time. Thanks again, this helps!
