Hi, my saliva test is so bad - every sample below range - that despite trying CT3 and LDN it is looking more and more likely that the only way to progress is to take hydrocortisone. Unfortunately my cortisol blood comes back high, so I can't see an NHS GP prescribing me any and I know it is very expensive to buy from the states.
Has anyone seen a private dr in the UK who has prescribed them anything - LDN, NDT or HC? - and if so how did the money work out, how much did you have to pay for prescription in addition to the consultant fee and how expensive was the actual medication compared to buying from US Pharmacy or other? Did you have to pay for a prescription every time you needed it?
I have an appointment in Jan with Dr Myhill and just wondering whether it would be better to spend the money on sourcing HC myself or more sustainable to go to her. I know that once I go down the HC route I am unlikely to be able to come off it and I just don't know how I am going to afford to keep on it for life! Alternatively I don't know how many more years of my life I can lose to so called 'M.E'.
If you have any experiences of paying for private please help me. Thank you
