Hi All, I accept I need to be told off as I posted 8 months ago about my 16-year-old son and although I have followed most of the very much appreciated advice but I haven't taken him to Dr BDP (affording it is the problem but I should have found the money somehow). I am just reading his book and I have read many others as well as websites and forums. This morning I asked him to take his temperature before he got up and it was 35.2C. I know he has to take few more times and work out the average. Actually, he is up now and has taken it again and is still 35.2C. I haven't taken his temperature for years but seem to remember that his 'normal' temperature is around 36.5C.
His mental health has not improved, he has been on antidepressants and off again. When I mentioned hypothyroidism to his psychiatrist, she didn't seem to know (or care) that thyroid disorders could cause depression and anxiety etc. She did remember that in hypothyroidism the pulse is low, therefore, took my son's pulse and it was normal. He has taken his pulse at home too and it is normal.
He has been seen by a paediatrician (infectious diseases) who took blood tests and thought my son might have chronic fatigue. The appointment was in the beginning of March and I still haven't got the blood test results (the numbers and the ranges) apart from that they are normal. Our GP surgery hasn't received them either. I have rang the hospital and left a message again today. Paediatrician has referred him to Physiotherapy because of the pain he is in. Twice during the appointment she wondered why has my son not been referred to Great Ormond Street.
I am giving him supplements: Vitamin D3, various B vitamins, magnesium and so on.
Can anyone shed light into what might be going on with his temperature?
