Just home from A&E. Couldn't stand it any more and couldn't get through to surgery so gave up and went to hosp. Why did I bother!
TSH 'normal' 'we don't test for t3 or any of the others, you have to see an endo for those and this isn't an emergency so our endos wont see you, you have to be referred'.
I asked what other tests he did but he was not forthcoming. If I asked directly, 'did you test my parathyroid, cortisol, potassium, his response to each was either, 'it was normal' or we don't do those only an endo can (but he didn't offer those results until I asked). Oh, and 'we don't do a 24hr saliva test for cortisol it's not acurate enough, we only do urine tests'. I asked for copy of results and he said I had to write to the hosp and pay a fee!
So for someone who can barely stand, has palpetations and chest pain, muscle pain and cramps, tingling in hands and lips, headaches, back pain, dizziness, intolerance to light, severe fatigue, severe weakness and light headed with no sense of balance etc etc, I am in disgustingly good health, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS WRONG WITH ME!!
