The good news is that given the fact that I have been ill for quite some time and after numerous visits to my GP spanning in excess of 10 years I finally came across this site.
Subsequently I have been to Dr S and received a diagnosis for my condition (Hypo) and falsely assumed that my GP would remain true to his word 'If Dr S confirms there is something wrong I am happy to prescribe on NHS' so imagine my surprise when he backtracks after receiving the letter from Dr S.
Suffice to say something changed between surgery opening and my appointment (early am) in that he has signed a NHS prescription which the receptionist gave me after my appointment but during my consultation was more interested in pointing out the GMC for Dr S to which I politely skipped over advising him that I was well aware of the details on Dr S as I had searched myself.
My GP has spoken to a consultant Dr P*** at Nottingham who has advised that at most I am Euthyroid (guidance/advice needed plse) and as a result is still claiming there is nothing wrong with my thyroid. Although throughout the appointment he was constantly looking at my neck as Dr S had pointed out that I had a goitre.
Can anyone please recommend a sympathetic Endo as I feel that it's bad enough I had to personally fund the private referral and would like my treatment on the NHS especially considering that I have worked my butt of to contribute to the NHS.
TSH 1.5 (.3 - 5.5)
FT4 9.8 (10 - 19.8)
FT3 4.6 (3.5 - 6.7)
On a positive he has agreed to all blood tests on the NHS and agrees we should check B12, Vit D along with others suggested on this site.
Any advice for sick notes as he claims he doesnt see why I should be off taking into account my excessive symptoms and the fact DR S points out that I am myodexma.
Sorry for the long question
