Calling all hypothyroid people !

I did a search & couldn't find a forum for thyroid patients ! Gotta be kidding..you're out there somewhere !
I'd like to discuss symptoms, meds, anything relating to us as a group. I personally don't know anyone else with the problem, not even in my own family, & this condition is said to be inherited.
What do I tell my dr. about T3 & T4 tests ? I'm not sure what they are, & she didn't mention them.
I've been taking Levothyroxine for just over a year, & don't see much improvement as to fatigue & a lack of energy. I have to return for a checkup in a couple weeks. Any advice as to what to discuss with her about meds, or anything else ?
I look forward to hearing from U !
