ready for the long post: gets into my gp's room, oh how u doing nichola, not good I replied this dizziness and foggy thinking is getting beyond a joke now, im fed up with hearing what it isn't and not hearing what it is! dr "at least all ur tests has came back as nothing serious, I said u don't think what im struggling with on a day to day basis managing a home life and 4 children serious?, I have spent many years feeling like this and now its time I need answers and im not accepting the "depression" "anxiety" diagnosis anymore, im fed up with my endo putting it back to u and vice versa, I explained how I thought my ferritin was low she declined saying its because of womans menstral cycles I said well I don't get them as im on the depot injection which stops it, she went quiet, I said my results wouldn't even be as good not that they are if I wasn't supplementing, u think I need iron? she ignored, I explained how I would love herself and my endo to go through just one day feeling like me and not ask answers, I told her I have had enough of this and I now want answers, she looked at my long list of symptoms and said why its a lot but I don't think there is any one illness that causes all this, I said well I do then she said what thyroid? hello yes have u looked up thyroid I said to the gp, I said don't u think im sat here wanting to have this illness as I don't, don't sit there thinking this is a hypochondriact infront of u cause its not, I am a person who has gone thru nearly 18 years of being ill and as time has gone on getting more and more symptoms (worse now since stopping smoking) I need answers!
she read the letter that my endo sent her and only because I was quoting it and I said he offered the op there are ways he could try to shrink my nodule, and he lied telling me it hasn't grown but it has, and I explained that years ago we would get treated 4 our symptoms and not the lab work, she replied "what do u want out of this, if u had a answer what would you want (her thinking im a hyperchondriact right?) I WANT TO GET WELL I WANT ANSWERS, i told her i heard about many people commiting suicide because the bloody speacialists don't listen, i said if i don't get help im going to be self medicating even if its just to rule this out, i said if u had been ill as long as i have u would go looking for answers and i have, do u know how many people actually are suffering from negligence, i also told her my sisters has a b12 deficiency and she fobbed that off!
i am being referred to another endo 4 a second opinion and she stated she cant give thyroxeine its my endo that has too and a neurologist
where do I go from here? x
