Still having lots of symptoms but am unsure what is after affects of the meningitis and what's the symptoms of the underactive thyroid so i went all prepared to discus all my symptoms with the doctor 2 full pages of them. as it turned out it was a big waste of time i didn't get to see my usual doctor.
First he asked me how i had been in my recovery from the meningits i explained how awful i had been feeling and gave him my 2 pages of symptoms which he barley glanced at. He then asked me what i could do to help myself in my recovery of which i could think of nothing that i am not already doing. he told me to get into a routine, hes obviously never been recovering from near death with an under active thyroid, does he really think i would be there if i could help myself. Anyway he then went through my results of which he said my thyroid seemed to be coming down all by its self ( must be a miracle) only to scroll down his page to realise i am on thyroid meds. Am going to get in touch with my own GP as soon as he is back in work as i still feel like death most days. he also said my T4 is now ok and my TSH is not to bad just a bit above range so to stay on 50mcg levo and come back in 2 months, dont think i will be taking his advice, so if any of you lovely people could give me advice on my latest results that would be great thanks
