I had my appointment with the endocrinologist - (seen her a few times before) I was so pleased with all the improvements and feeling really positive, thinking all the hours of work I put in to understanding the illness were finally paying off - I absolutely gutted by her response - she said people try lots of different things but never get better, you just have to live with it as their is nothing we can do, every symptom I still have - is down to the Thyroid and she could not offer any test or help in anyway, even though I asked for certain tests - "we don't test for that etc etc- just one excuse after another. I was even more flabbergasted when she said "when would you like to see me again" - What on earth would be the point? My partner said to her - "what exactly are you getting paid for, you have nothing to help " - he is wonderful - I couldn't have said it better my self.
I asked about Acupuncture - she just told me to ask my GP for the list of ones that are ok - four weeks to see the GP, but then can you trust people they recommend?
So frustrating and apparently my TSH was exactly the same as last time - which must be utter rot as everyone has been saying how much better I am doing.
Their are lots of people who recover, why would she say that - I found that very upsetting
