Saw a(nother) GP a couple of weeks ago.... This time (ha!) I was worried about my apparent increased heart-rate.
As I menioned at the time - and it is no doubt noted on record - that I THINK that I have a thyroid issue, he did offer to
get bloods done and also an ECG. Usual tests - inc TFT, LFT, CRP and another on (BNP?) for the heart.
I saw Dr P in May and am trying to follow his protocol for adrenals as he was sure that they are not in good shape. But I worried that the Nutri Adrenal Extra might be causing the heart ?palpitations?.
After the ECG yesterday, the GP called me (this is how it works now at the Practice I belong to) to tell me that everything is NORMAL, both on th ECG and the blood tests. He would not even tell me the results in numbers/units, let alone reference ranges or where in the range the results were - just NORMAL - as is, thankfully, the ECG, although now he wants - to be sure - to get an Echocardiogram (which I shall probably not bother with). This is 100% to keep me quiet, I know it.
To add insult to injury, he likened the situation to a car going for repair and that I must "trust the mechanic", most escpecially as, and I quote, "I may be wrong but I am sure that you haven't had the twelve years training that I have to be able to understand these results in context".
So, pretty much, I am stupid car.
Seriously, where the Hell do I turn if I can't even get to see the results (which I have been given previously, hence knowing that I did have low ferritin and that the TSH was following an upward trend)?
I must be bloody invincible, considering the way I feel and yet there is "nothing wrong".
