I went to see the doctor as when I had a chest infection when abroad a year ago the French doctor was concerned about neck being swollen ...I was reading through a few posts before i went to my uk doc as feeling awful and was thinking my gosh doctors don't seem to understand it ... AND IT'S TRUE ... I left feeling like a fool and for no reason. she would only agree to testing TSH and T4 she looked at my neck and prodded it said OoOoo definite goitre (not sure if that's spelt correctly) very swollen etc and I asked for an ultrasound and the blood tests and she was like one step at a time and said because im a new paient she isn't going to just run every test I ask for!!
I get the results back on Monday problem is I'm too shattered to argue with her and my neck hurts feels like im being strangled.. I dont really want to see her again as she seemed like she isn't interested, was in a rush and was really rude and made me feel unable to chat to her.. My mums friend recommended a doctor in Belgium has anyone else done something like this to get treatment faster and more helpful????? I'm off travelling in May and I'm 21 I just want to feel good again and not like I'm 91.
Sorry to rant thanks for your help xx
