After having blood results the other day, went for a follow up appointment with my GP. I really donnot know why i bother but i think i went as im feeling a liitle lost in the fog with my results and meds at the moment and thought he might be able to help....lol.
I was taking 75mcg cynomel and 50 mcg levo which id restarted due to returning symptoms on t3 only ( i had been off it for around 7 weeks). I n general i feel much better than last year unless i exert myself...either at home or work...then im quite fatigued and mood follows. My memory is shockingly bad too and have a increased volume in my tinnitus which is horrid.
My results were... i stopped my t3/t4 the day before the draw.
FT3 7.3 ( 4-6.8 )
FT4 2.0 ( 12-22)
TSH 0.05 ( 0.3-4.2)
According to GP my tsh is now suppressed and i am now at risk of osteoporosis and AF and advised me to drop the t3. And he says my bloods are now normal and that it isnt my thyroid anymore thats causing me any fatigue or symptoms. He said he'd spoken to a biochemist about the reliability of the saliva test and deemed it inaccurate and unreliable ( mine diagnosed adrenal exhausion) , favouring the blood cortisol or short synthacen test (which of course had come out normal). So...there is nothing else he can test for or is prepared to test for....thank you and goodbye!
The only positive from this visit was that he said he would refer to dr skinner....i dont think he knew who he was tho....and i said no more about it, leaving his details with the receptionist.
But what appalling care.....We have moved house again recently so i will be changing surgeries....again!!! I dont think i can be bothered to go thro everything again tho.....
I have made a complete pigs ear of my recovery plan through apathy, depression and fatigue. Im dreading seeing Dr P too......as his diaries have become non existant . I feel like im giving up but probably need another good kick up the butt and to get a grip......sorry another gloomy blog :(((
hugs to all.......K x
