I saw gp end end of march/April and we had a difference of opinion. She believes my long list of hypo symptoms are menopausal and said I would feel 'much better' on hrt. I refused as I have regular periods and have never had a hot flush. She more or less said if I didn't try hrt there was nothing she could do. Anyway to cut a long story shorter the last few weeks I have felt awful, terrible joint pains, heavy fuzzing legs, brain fog, generally low. My husband finally flipped, massive row and said if I didn't sort myself out he was off!! So I rang gp but she was on 2 weeks hols. Spoke to a locum and when I asked for hrt as advised by previous doc she said 'but you are not menopausal'. I explained my symptoms and she said I had to come in to discuss it. I said I have been in umpteen times but never got anywhere. She said she wanted to see me so I have appt for Wednesday. I am confused, how can 2doctors say different things, who js right, wh o should I believe. Is this a glimmer of hope or another humiliating trips to the doctors. Hubby not leaving and is is supportive of me going to gp and taking me out to dinner tonight! What do you experts think?
