My doctor tells me that as long as my TSH is within the normal range I shouldn't be having any symptoms from my thyroiditis. Some of my other blood work is way too high but he says that shouldn't cause any symptoms. I feel so tired and so scatter brained. I was missing so much work because I was too tired to get out of bed. I have gotten antisocial where I don't want to leave my house. I was worried i was going to lose my job because of my attendance so the nurse practitioner put me off work for a month. Dr says I have to go back to work since my TSH is normal. I am so confused because I still feel like crap and my other blood work is thru the roof. Going to the endocrinologist next wk so I am hoping he can explain things to me. I am not ready to go back to work and don't want to lose my job have worked at my job for over 20 yrs.
Has anybody else had this experience with their doctor?

Hi Peckley! I've been very very fortunate to have found 2 endocrinologists who have treated my symptoms and not just looked at the numbers. My TSH is usually WNL but I know, from experience, that I feel best when my TSH is <2. Depending on what the endo says, I would search around for a DR who will treat your symptoms. I feel the same as you do and have been on synthroid for almost 10 yrs. Hope the endo has the answers!!
