Ok so I told him that I know I'm hypothyroid as I have so many symptoms of low thyroid.......low Ferritin, aches, pains, lethargic, constant infections & now bad acid refux. I told him I'd had half my thyroid removed & my blood tests were borderline. T.S.H. 5 T4 9 T3 2.5 I got shouted at & told my blood tests were normal & my Ferritin was normal at 30.
I told him I was going to see a private endo as he wouldn't help me & I got told that no endo in the land would prescribe thyroxine to me while I was in the normal thyroid band. My GP disputed the fact that acid reflux, constant bladder infections & low ferritin were linked to hypothyroidism. Tell me how many of you have any of these symptoms!!!
He said I can live perfectly well with only half a thyroid although my T4 has halved since my op & my T.S.H. is only just within my G.P.s guidelines of 5.5.
I'm wondering if anyone out there has managed to be prescribed Thyroxine when their blood results are within the N.H.S. guidelines but their symptoms indicate hypothyroidism.
