Help please !!!
I've just read this may be a problem?
Not only am I totally confused about the testing for UAThyroid but I'm also on statins so more confusion reigns !
I'm very proactive about my health - I've multiple health problems - and don't mind researching all necessary avenues !
I'm very fit (or was until multiple seizures last Dec) and live a very healthy lifestyle .....define healthy ??
From GP - the usual "all within normal range" yet all the usual UAT symptoms getting worse! I've had an UAthyroid now for 30years and feel I've never been tested thoroughly, however, I don't know nor fully understand what to do next?
Please someone help and send me in the right direction !
How do I get or even know if I need this elusive T3 done ?
What about the other Vitamin tests mentioned on other posts ?
Also.....big Q here .....what on earth qualifies me to see an Endo ?
GP says no need - it should be no skin off her nose as I've Bupa to use - suppose she needs to write something plausible in the GP to consultant Ref ......and can't be bothered trying to find one .....or God forbid actually listening to me!!
All this comes with a history of serious Nuero problems - very briefly - biopsy for brain tumour CNS vasculitis, multiple other Neuro conditions tested and still no diagnosis "rare Neuro disease keep vigilante MRI's going every 4 months to check for changes"
There's just something in me ,call it gut feeling, that feels there's something more going on (poss out of Neuro remit) that needs Endo or Rheumo investigation or........???
I've started with my thyroid detective work as it seemed the best place to start ??
I should add I'm on Amlodopine and Perindiprol for high BP (which is no longer high btw)
3 anti seizure drugs on a now tapering dose (hesitate to say Epliepsy as that hasn't yet been confirmed and "isn't likely")
Inhaled steroids and Montelukast for resistant asthma (since age 11)
and of course the aforementioned
Statin and Levo 100
I'm a mess ! Any suggestions very welcome !!!
