Is my Endo colourblind?

Is my Endo colourblind?

My Endo who said I am Hashi's has recently sent me a copy of the report when I saw her a few weeks ago and one part of the report states the following:

" There was no evidence of any joint swelling, skin rashes or Raynaud's."

I have taken photos of my feet which show discolouration typically seen in Raynaud's because I was that annoyed about what she wrote even though I suffer from Raynaud's to the point where my toes go purple.

I don't think she examined me properly.

I think she wrote the same standard letter she writes for all patients. That's what happened to me when I was referred to an "ME Specialist" 2 years ago. Total joke. Didn't ask enough questions to make a diagnosis, wasn't interested in my history, didn't order any tests, didn't examine me.

Wrote a letter to my GP saying I had ME. In the words of a therapist at a follow up session "we don't think he writes them himself because they are all the same and yours was unsigned".

Daft, isn't it. I've got photographic evidence of the Raynaud's so I'll be sending an email along with this image and the others to her.

I might be going to a rheumatologist now as she thinks I have a connective tissue disease.

Thanks Rosetrees.

Hi, I made a complaint about my previous practice as they refused to test my thyroid anymore despite a high TSH and they were trying to score points by justifying 18 months of misdiagnosis by saying I missed 2 GP appointments.

I gave up after that as there was no reasoning with them.

Try your MP and the local paper. or the Daily Mail.

Archipoeta, I might be doing that going by the ultrasound report that lay hidden for 2 years which was never actioned. Words in the report such as "fenestration" and "thyroid vascularity" mean the possibility of cancer.
