Hi all. I went to see the Endo at the local hospital today as requested for all the results of my bloods and full hormonal panel and thyroid scan. To my surprise, I was seen by the top Endo not the stroppy person I saw last month.
I won't bore you with all the results but the thing I am really alarmed about is:
1. Three days ago I received a letter of confirmation from the top ophthalmologist at my local hospital to confirm ( from physical eye tests and measurements performed a couple of weeks ago) that amongst other things, My episodes of double vision is due to thyroid eye disease. Obviously I have been quite concerned and upset (and confused) regarding this news as I can most certainly have wider implications for my future health and life style.
2. The Endo today said according to his blood results I do not have TED! He did say I have mild real disease which probably caused the high BP - though this was almost as an aside.
I am feeling worn out with all the many appointments I have had and now the consultants cannot agree. Both have now discharged me back to the care of my GP... who though approachable and caring, is by her own admission not an expert on any of these things.
What and who do I believe now?
