I have seen a few headers when Goggling Health Unlocked that mention the site had a *list*of good Endocrinologists? Is there such a thing? If so I cannot find it on the website.
After recent Adrenal tests *finally *flagged up Cortisol issues that show I really should be under an Endo before going ahead with injections prescribed by my new Gyne I want to find a Consultant who is actually going to listen, investigate properly & be nice - not treat me in an uncaring, arrogant manner & leave me still unwell.
To cut along story this year alone I do not have insurance and have I have already , this year alone, spent nearly a lot of money on a Private Vascular Consultant (London), private G.P (Harrow) who is the ‘Menopause lead’ at the local hospital who thinks *everything* is due to Menopause & wants to push her Menopause new drugs, & another dubious *so called* private G.P. (London) who made me pay for a lot of tests I’d already recently had via the NHS plus expensive Adrenals but then just said he wanted me to take supplements but only *after* I’d had Vascular tests via his *colleague* who I saw privately paid the private G.P £25 for a ref letter and was supposed to see him on the NHS but did not get my appointment (over 3 months later) I've had to complain via PALS.
((Additionally the same private G.P. has charged my 20yr old daughter over £300 on bloods & supplements -which actually made her very sick but he then wanted her to *carry on with them* & then sell her more…))
I have been under the care of an Endo/ Gyne at London hospital for over 3 years who although a very pleasant woman has consistently misdiagnosed issues & put me on meds that contravene my outstanding medical problems plus the fact that is the hospital that messed up my Laparoscopy leaving me needing my umbilicus repositioned & having to take daily laxatives for 2 yrs as my bowel suffered damage from the procedure.
Also her *take*on my ongoing symptoms is to *leave it* for 3 months,*leave it for 6mths* ect & she failed to diagnose that I have Endometriosis…
My issues are following a Laparoscopy that went *very* wrong & left me in extreme daily pain and has transcended into a Vascular issue that was flagged up by my Osteopath/Acupuncturist & the Practice Nurse at my new G.P surgery.
I’ve been left to organise my own pain relief via Acupuncture & Osteopathy but although relaxing therapies - has very short term results.
I have now found very good Gyne Consultant in Brighton but I was not in receipt of my test results when initially saw him.
I want to continue under his care so I’m looking for a Brighton based Endo so my notes can be easily cross-referenced.
Can you please suggest any good Brighton / Sussex based Endo’s as I’ve become so ill very quickly in the last few months & the issues are escalating weekly.
I’m 80% bed bound & my circulation is worsening ditto blurred vision, painful breasts, fluid build up in abdo & legs, sweating & shakes. I’ve also notice that I’m losing hair around my hailine.
Additionally the fact that I had several episodes of ‘Black Tongue’ in 2011(prior to the mal-surgery) leading to 3 hospital admissions with suspected Pancreatic flare ups now finally makes sense thanks to the Practice Nurse (not the G.P’s!)
Sorry if this all seems a bit garbled but I find it difficult to type now due to the vascular issues & muscle weakness in my hands.
Therefore I’m grateful for any recommendations as I’ve been choosing VERY badly when it comes to paying for medical help (private G.P‘s & Consultants) have basically been ripped off this year & I’ve not got insurance.
I know that Dr’s cant be named in postings so please PM me if you have advice
