I had to see my Gp the other day as my sick cert ran out . However I had previously been to see my boss who told me that she didn't think i was like the person she knew , she said since this autoimmune thyroid , I had become very slow and not half as alert as the person she has been used to over the last ten years,
She too has had thyroid problems, she had hers out !!!
She even offered to come to the Gp with me , dont know if that was a joke or not, however... I went to my Gps surgery and saw a locum, she started well and said 'I want to treat you not just your results,, i shook her hand , but i think i was a little bit ,previous as after i had only got half way through my symptoms as it was obvious she hadnt even looked at my file,,she looked at my screen, she had already signed me off for the next month , and i was trying to tell her the pain killers for my leg have stopped working and that i feel i have gone right back to how i felt at the beginning, as even though ive upped my meds , im twice as slow , head foggy and sweaty and it just feel as if its beginning again!
Trouble is I hadnt even managed to tell her half of that before she looked at the screen and said times up , youre exceeding your limit, cant give you a blood test not for two months bye!! She did however agree to swap my painkillers after much deliberation,, I just feel the Gps here are keeping me ill,,, I want to know two things ,1 can someone tell me please what a really healthy thyroid blood test should look like?
2,If I swap my Gp mid treatment to a new doctor who doesnt know me , becuse of my condition is there anything i should do , know , tell the gp etc,? REALLY FED UP AND GETTING REALLY DOWN , Im used to running about and getting up at 6 am and going to work and sometimes working till midnight,, now i dont have the energy for two hours !!
