Dr skinner is totally amazing!
i met him today, what a character, put me at ease, was thorough, patient, amusing and professional...although he did pinch my 10 month olds crisps.. I shall bill him
in a nutshell. He confirm hypothyroidism! He recommndeds increase of thyroxine from 50 mcg I'm on at the moment (a trial from the GP) to 125 mcg in three intervals over the next 9 weeks.
i may need more, but will be reassessed in September.
Need MRI dong to rule out pituitary tumour, due I high prolactin. He did say the levels will come down as my thyroid function recovers.
I feel like a new woman tonight, the fact I have been treated well, believed and diagnosed has made me feel like ive turned a corner. It can only get better hopefully now.
Next the fun bit, will my GP honour Dr Skinners diagnosis and prescription... Tomorrow I will have the answer to this question
An added bonus is I have found out I can claim half the consultation appointment back through the hospital fund. Happy bloody day!
he is worth every penny!
