I was hoping to hear about what experiences you've all had/been having with your GP's/Endo's regarding your issue, and their attitudes towards it.
Since my diagnosis I've been seeing the same GP whom I presumed was knowledgeable and helpful until I began reading this forum. Since my diagnosis 12 months ago, the extent of my treatment is Levo and TSH & T4 tests. Is this similar to everyone else's experiences? I'm still stuck in bed 18-20 hours a day and unable to function cognitively, but as my 'levels are normal' there's nothing they can do.
I've since educated myself thoroughly on the ins and outs, and all the potential causes of this, and its slightly worrying. I've not been offered a referral to find out what's going on, any more in-depth tests whatsoever to check conversion, I've simply been put on Levothyroxine. It's opened my eyes to how much we all trust 'the smart looking bloke sat at the desk' and presume they know the ins and outs of every condition.
I'm in again tomorrow and not leaving without progress, be it a referral, a slight increase in Levo to take my t4 up ths down, or exploring the idea of NDT with him.
So my questions are: How are your experiences with your doctors? Do you feel as though they understand what's going on and have the knowledge to deal with you?
