My diagnosis from the Consultant physician who said TSH test is THE MOST accurate test for thyroid (I'm scraping in just within normal range) .... she wrote to my GP saying her diagnosis is Chronic Fatique Syndrome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am speechless. Imagine not listening to or thoroughly asking a patient who is trying to tell you their on going symptoms, thyroid history, family history. But deciding on CFS because you're tired and disregarding everything else. At best shocking, at worst dangerous.
I said to a new GP today that I wasn't accepting that diagnosis and from my history with hypo thyroid I know my symptoms and I'm worried because they're getting increasingly worse and I've finished antibiotics for yet another infection. Thankfully he listened to my symptoms and said he would write to endocrine, although I'm worried about where he's referred to (the nearest place) because I've not heard great things but at least it's a referral ??
