Hey guys, I'm new here.
I have suffered with extreme fatigue for 20 years, mostly mental but also physical. The mental is what stops me living my life though.
4 years ago I had many tests done. I had low end of normal thyroid, positive lupus coagulant test, positive ANA tests, low end of acceptable iron. No diagnosis. I was offered anti-depressants. I could have quite honestly jumped off a cliff there and then.
I've not been back since, I think it scarred me for life. I was made to feel like a hypochondriac.
In April this year the fatigue was just too much. I quit a high paid job and haven't earned a penny since. Luckily I had savings but they're running out.
I'm currently self medicating with NDT and taking 2 grains a day, soon to be upped to 3 grains. I'm feeling a little better but still not good enough to get my life back on track.
I have been reading about T3 only via Paul Robinson, who's story is eerily similar to my own.
I am hoping to find a new doctor in Bournemouth who will take my symptoms and tests seriously and hopefully be prescribed T3 only.
Any ideas how I'll find a new doctor?
Thanks for listening.
