Dr Paul,

Ive had several thyroid tests done over the past year, and my TSH has been above 2.0, sometimes going above 4.0, but no one has been ableto diagnose me with hypothyroidism. I feel tired all the time, yawn all day, my hands and feet are icy cold all the time, my hair falls. the tiredness is quite debilitating.

Recently my mom and maternal grandmother were diagnosed with hyptothyroidism, with my mother's being in a late stage. What do I do? Ive been to several doctors to no avail
