T4 is 8.7 but the doctor won' give me any medication unti it is below 8. Is this usual and is there anything I can do to deal with the symptoms?
Get your doctor to refer you to an Endocrinologist he/she take care of the endocrine system. I had symptoms of hypothyroid and I asked my doctor to refer me to an Endo. He really didn't think I needed one and I had a tsh over 7. When I saw the endo she said I definitely was hypo and have been on synthroid since. Thank God. I feel the fine now. Good luck
