Been to see Dr Skinner today. At long last, someone who will admit I have a thyroid problem and offer support. He is a lovely man and very amusing. We talked for about an hour and he looked at my bloods. discussed symptoms, he took blood pressure, pulse , temperature. Funnily enough I am feeling a bit warmer now but my temp was still only 36.4 (dont take my temp in the day, just do basal) Anyway we discussed thyroxine, t3 and Armour , and he was happy to write to my GP to see if she would perscribe armour (wont hold my breath) as this is what ive been self medicating with, but its a start. He read the letter I sent to my gp asking for referral following numerous visits and blood tests which resulted in no help. He said the symptoms I had told the gp about and written in letter where obvious hypothyroid symptoms , but he didnt seem surprised at her lack of diagnosis. Anyway , just grateful for getting this appointment and actual diagnosis, as you will all understand this means a lot after years of struggling with G.P.s.
