Hello! Again you cheerful tenacious for life souls!! Well I'm about to challenge my GP again. From the beginning, like you, been amazed at how I have had to plan strategies in order to TRY! to achieve my goal at any given time (believe me on first realizing this was necessary) I really thought I would have no problem. Now I really am putting the following mistake (if indeed it is a mistake) down to gross 'brain fog'. Naa' Just plain stupid!!! Having trained in Nursing & Midwifery &, more than used to conveying patient info. to the great & the good. To the Point now!!! Maybe many of you like me have had Thyroid function tests, If you have'nt you should have! WEEEEEEllll !!! On the 15th of this month I hope I'm about to find out (something which has only just dawned on me), THAT IS, Whether or not they test ONLY for 'Thyroid Stimulating Hormone', OR, DO THEY? Test for T3 & T4 also Free T3 & Free T4 also Revised T3. Some of you naturally won't know what this means, will take to long for me to type it all down, I'm sure you guys will look it up. Ultimately though (& I PROMISE YOU, YOU ARE NOT GETTING OR HAVE NOT HAD THE PROPER TEST!) i DO HAVE A STRONG FEELING THAT THIS AWFUL 'DISEASE' & RELATED ILLNESSES COULD WELL BE DOWN TO 'UNDER OR EVEN OVER ACTIVE THRYROID, MAYBE EVEN 'HASHIMOTO'S' DISEASE. Soooo! Ha Ha! I'm so excited (So Rare). I just had to share this with you guys, maybe you can get to it straight away. Whatever, my very good wishes, and bless you all.
