Seen Endo at local hospital last Wednesday, much to my upset I didn't get the one I requested to see from Louise Warvill's list, so I think that Dr A that I did see was a little annoyed with me from the start. Had Graves disease diagnosed in 2008 by Dr A and he treated me with stop and replace for 18 months. Then all treatment removed. Battled with my GP for last 3 years to get to see an Endo again because my TSH has been repeatedly high at 3.3 - 3.9 (range 0.35-4.5), and I have been feeling awful, joint ache, tiredness, hair loss, weight gain, low vitamin D, brain fog, no periods and then very heavy 3 week ones etc... Now Dr A last week was ready to push me out the door before I even sat down. Said all my symptoms were to do with my age and nothing else, he looked at previous blood tests and said all is OK and within range. To cut a long story short, he said he would to a blood test for my for my Thyroxine level and that's all, I think he just said that to get rid of me, anyway I have now this morning received on a scrap of paper from my hospital. Thyroid Stimulating 3.5 Free Thyroxine 17.2 Normal results
Can any one please tell me what this means!! Is it normal??
I am off to Rheumatology Department today, for another 2nd opinion on that side of things. Why do I feel so ill if I keep repeatedly get told nothing is wrong with me??
Please help and sorry for the rant x
