Good afternoon everyone,
I have to let of a little steam. After months of waiting for an appointment to see a "Specialist", the day finally arrives, so I go along quite optimistic, thinking at last, some help.
The consultant went through my health issues, then the nurse took me into the examination room and said "I have been through more than you" I was shocked but never commented, afterall lots of people do not understand the amount of Thyroid/Adrenal suffering that goes on.
After the specialist had done what he needed, I went back in the consulation room and he said "I do not know what to suggest, I could only give you what the doctors have already tried" I will refer you on, refer me on to who? He is supposed to be the specialist.
How can a specialist have no idea what to do, he must know more than the GP, that is why he is a "specialist"
I thought it was only Endocrinologist that were not great, I was wrong, it seems to be specialists in lots of things.
