I just cannot understand why they are so blinkered.I have heard it said in my own surgery that they have their hands tied!!
Tied from what ? Making us well ? Listening to patients' symptoms?
I have personally had to say at one appointment...I'm over here in my body ......not in that screen!! .....You can have no idea how much it hurt me to have spoken that way as It's just not me.
I have great respect for GPs, the heavy workload and responsibility they carry,especially with our ageing population,but somehow changes have to be made in the teaching of medical students regarding the diagnosing and correct treatment of Hypothyroidism at an early stage not decades later when patients are absolutely desperate to get their sense of well being back.
What a joy it would be for us all to actually feel " NORMAL"
