yes well most GPs know less about your thyroid than your best mate does, let's face it... My private Endo doesn't know why mine did what it did.. Honestly they know nothing
I felt very strange when I suddenly went Hyper.. I rang Blue Horizon and got a FULL FULL set of tests for EVERYTHING THAT DAY.. then I cut out the thyroxine because I KNEW I was over-medicated..
Saw the endo on the saturday when she said.. Oh it must have been thyroiditis.. - I said.. it couldn't have been because see here in my full blood test, negative antibodies
She said.. oh well then you must have had an infection - I said, it can't be because see here in my full blood tests, no elevated white blood cell count
She said.. oh well then I don't know.... so I said.. I think I'm cured... the antibodies have gone.. so now I'm just left with a thyroid that is either going to work, or isn't.. she was supportive and I'm having weekly blood tests until we get the maintenance dose right.. I was hoping I could get away with no medication but sadly.. after 2 weeks started to feel rough so am adding it in gently....
Get Wednesday's blood results later today... TSH was 0.01 on THAT dat then 0.04 after a week of no meds then 0.49 after a week of 1/2 a grain so today's will be after a week on 1 grain... we will see.....
I don't feel FANTASTIC but think maybe that I've only got Armour in little doses and I prefer Erfa... so who knows? But I am certainly not feeling ill..
