Normal range for TSH is 0.4 - 3.5... that sounds well within normal range...

Have they checked your Free T3 and T4?
I'm assuming this is a thyroid issue?

Poor you. flowers Can I recommend this website

healthunlocked.com/thyroiduk

There are lots of knowledgeable people on there. I am new to it all, but I think you should also ask for your vitamin D to be re-checked and possibly your B12.

I have hashimotos and have quarterly blood tests, they always check those three as well as the antibody level, the TSH alone isn't a good indicator. Plus some people have more symptoms than others. I gather it's a bit hit and miss as it's often not well understood, so maybe see another doc?

If you really feel this may be what's wrong there is a book I recommend reading and you should go back to your GP armed with all the right questions and you can explain why you are asking for the tests.
