ok, so I don't get on here as much as I would like, a thousand apologies. I'm now somewhat selfishly asking some advice. I was a patient of Dr Skinner. My GP was fully supportive of what he was doing and prescribed me first: levothyroxine, then the addition of liothyronine, then after having second child and me feeling REALLY ill, Armour thyroid. When Dr Skinner sadly passed away, I approached Dr Myhill, who write to my GP, then...BOOM, everything blew up. They withdrew they support of Armour. Ok, so I could live with this, so I approached Dr Myhill to prescribe me who asked for confirmation that my GP would blood test (free T3, Free T4 and TSH) and also monitor me for signs of thyrotoxicity. Something they had been doing for years. Now they have withdrawn all support, full stop. Nothing. I have been prescribed Liothyronine for circa 5-6 years now. What can I do to fight this...? I simply cant afford to purchase the meds I need to keep well for my two children (2 & 3) privately, as well as pay for private consultations with Dr Myhill and private blood tests too. Has anyone else had experience of this situation and can anyone help please, I have a meeting with my GP about this on friday. Im crying my eyes out writing this - so please excuse any bad spelling. xxx
