Thanks everyone for your welcome replies. I do really need to get another appointment as I've just discovered that sleep apnea is linked to hypothroidism as well! I have been snoring badly for months & my husband has to nudge me as I sometimes stop breathing in my sleep. I did see a E.N.T. specialist recently & had a camera threaded up my nose & down my throat & some pictures showed abnormal soft tissue swelling at the back of my throat. The specialist did want to do a biopsy but I refused as I can't face a general anesthetic just now.......feel ill enough without more stress! The specialist had told me rudely to loose weight to rectify my snoring & acid reflux so I lost faith in her as I'm a size 14 & cannot lose weight even by starving myself & forcing myself to walk for miles each day!
Does anyone know if Dr Skinner is still available for appointments? Or does anyone know of a good endo in the South? All the doctors/specialists I see are barking up the wrong tree & talk down to me.........I'm not stupid, just ill like a lot of you. We all know what our problem is but mention thyroid issues to doctors & it's all cloak & daggers!
Thanks again everyone x
