Hi all, my husband had a thyroid storm Sept last and was very ill but thankfully has recovered.
We went today to see the Endocrinologist at our local hospital for his checkup. I have Hashimotos myself and haven't been feeling very well for the last 6mths even though my gp thinks everything is normal ( usual story) anyway after chatting to my hubby I asked him about myself.
He asked permission to go into my notes. He said my tsh is fluctuating and that I would prob feel better with it at 1 or below. I said I had already asked my doc for an increase but refused. He shook his head and said " I don't believe in normal reference ranges if symptoms are persisting".
I swear I could've cried. He said he would treat me and to ask for referral. He also mentioned T3 and all other vitamins and electrolytes aswell as full cealiac profle.
I was so grateful I hugged him lol he was such a lovely man and very hunky haha. So now I can't wait to tell my useless doc tomorrow that I want a referral. I just don't understand how GPs are so rigid with ranges they are keeping so many ppl ill. So fingers crossed I can make this happen. Feeling more hopeful today.
