I am now desperate to find a doctor who will not just treat on TSH. I just missed out on seeing Dr Skinner and since November I have been trying to find another doctor. My GP is anxious to refer me, but I am not prepared to go back to my local hospital.
I have been very unwell over the last couple of weeks and increased my levo to 150mcg, which seems to have eased the symptoms, but my GP considered me over-medicated on 100mcg, because my TSH was suppressed, even though my TSH is always suppressed as soon as I take any form of thyroid medication, and my FT4 was only 30% into the range.
After nine years struggling to get anything like proper treatment (I still don't have a diagnosis despite 14 endo appointments over a four year period) I am not prepared to give up now.
I am prepared to pay and I am prepared to travel.
Can anyone help?
