Hello. I have a doctor appointment this coming Thursday and I would like to know which blood tests to ask for .... I would like to have the one that checks on the Fibrinogen.. and the Free T4... The test from five years ago was very high Fibrinogen.. ( 514 ) and the Free T4 was low ( 0.7 ) .. I had been having some Tia's and very sticky phlegm which was coating my airways and causing me moments on being able to breath.... In spite of the facts that I have most symptoms of Hughs syndrome the doctor said that because a few of the other tests were not high or low that nothing was wrong with me.... My saving grace was the internet and finding a few products that thin the blood.... but I still have the headaches.. or stuffy head... dizziness among other symptoms... I'm praying that this new doctor will listen to me ... So I only want the basic tests to begin with... doctors seem to hate when I have my own ideas of what I need... So I'm hoping that if a fewtests show a problem then they will be more open to more tests..
I live with this body and know whats working and what isn't ... So I have a lot of trouble with the doctors
not wanting to listen to me / us....... Wonder why the doctors have a problem with us researching solutions to symptoms our systems are having.
.... PLease help.... and bless you all for hanging in there with us newbies..... For many of us you are our only lifeline.......... hugs France
