I'm sorry, first post and it's a long one!
So about 3 years ago I found a lump on my thyroid, had it scanned and told it was a cyst and don't worry about it. It began to be very painful and so saw the Gp for painkillers . I was back and forth as nothing would get rid of the pain. That's when I started getting other symptoms, sweating, being aware of my pulse, hands trembling, weight loss.
For weeks a kept getting told that blood tests confirmed there was no cause, it's all in my head etc. Eventually I went to the Gp as my heart was beating at 130bpm at rest. I would have been put on beta blockers and left to it but I'm asthmatic so was sent to AAU which found I was massively hyperthyroid.
Anyway I was treat for this and it was found to be viral thyroiditis. After a few weeks I was found to be hypothyroid so was taken off the meds and eventually bloods went back to normal.
Fast forward to last year, went to the Gp as I was feeling tired all the time, drinking 3+ litres a day and still being thirsty (not just tired, drained, exhausted ) dry skin, hair falling out. A blood test was 'all fine'.
6 months later I still feel the same and can't lose weight so nurse suggests I see the Gp. So I went today and got told basically it's all in my head, by all means I can have a blood test but it'll come back fine and I just have to put up with it.
I'm of the mind to just think stuff it and not have the blood test because it'll no doubt come back fine and it'll be an 'I told you so' but at the same time I know my body and I know how it feels to be hypothyroid after last time and I also don't trust the gps after telling me it was in my head last time.
I seem to go to the Gp quite a lot (7-8 times a year).... so already think they think I'm wrong in the head. I'm now confused, cross, upset and don't know what to do?!
