tests showed an overactive thyroid. The consultant gave her ibuprofen and paracetomol to control the pain and said she would be referred to an endocrinologist. After 10 days of waiting i am going to the gp with her. Her eyes are severely swollen and bloodshot and she has a goiter. Should I be pushing for an appointment. I am really worried as they are controlling the pain but not treating the illness. We have not been told the test results.
