Hi I saw my GP today to discuss my symptoms. I left the appointment not knowing much more. I briefly said I had experienced some nausea all yesterday afternoon and this morning I had diarrhoea. When the GP looked at my latest TSH she said it could be that I'm overmedicated. With the racing heart she says it could be anxiety and recommended I look at some self-help books on mindfulness. Re the iron, she said she would like me to take it rather than not at all and suggested I take it once a day as opposed to 3 times a day. She tells me they don't taste nice but they are a food supplement and she is worried that by me not taking them I will become anaemic. I asked her about taking something with the iron tablets, like orange juice, she told me no because orange juice will affect the absorption.
I think now the overmedication symptoms are disappearing slowly because today I have felt extremely depressed and the fatigue is worse than ever.
I have put in a request for my sick note to be extended. The GP and the receptionist told me that sick notes are not written in advance and so I will need to call my employer and say the sick note will again be late.
