Is this good advice?

Depends on who said they were normal. I had 10 (yes 10) different doctors say my TSH was OK (just "a little" out of range), and it wasn't. I was very ill for 4 months before I referred myself to an Endocrinologist. Turns out, a lot of doctors don't know a lot about endocrinology, (sorry to any docs on the board). At least not enough for me. I finally found a good endo doc, and have been doing well for a number of years. Having trouble right now, and may need to do something more permanent. I had all your symptoms and several more, when I first developed Hyperthyroidism. If you are only seeing your GP, go see an endo doc as soon as you can. Take your blood tests. I get copies of ALL my results, and have a file at home to track and monitor the most important hormone levels, mostly my TSH and Free T4. Those are my problem ones.
