I have been suffering fatigue, palpitations, confusion, and mood swings since Aug 2013 and went to GP in Sept 2013. He prescribed Beta Blockers for the palpitations and eventually sent me for CBA as he thought I was stressed due to an increase in my workload. Despite CBA, I still have all the symptoms 9 months later.
In July 2013 my levothyroxine was reduced from 125mg to 100mg, despite telling GP that I was trying to get pregnant. He checked my bloods in Sept 2013 but they haven't been checked since, and I am not due for a review until March 2015. Below are the results of my last three blood tests. I have been attending a fertility clinic since Dec 2013 and in April 2014 was informed that my THS and FT4 are too high. The fertility Dr said that he would request my GP to increase my dosage. I saw my GP the next day and relayed this too them, but they said that until they received a letter, no increase. (Fertility clinic took bloods in April 2014 but I have not been given results yet)
I find dealing with my GP surgery very stressful and find them very patronising. I am so fed up and requested the results of all blood tests taken since 2010 (when diagnosed - I had to push to be tested despite complaining of symptoms since 2008).
Can anyone please advise me on how to deal with the GP on my next appointment? I will take my husband with me as I often forget what I need to say, or worse, just accept what I am told and seethe afterwards. My last prescription states that my next review is not until April 2015!
