Hi, thought I would update on my daughters situation. After being admitted to hospital for severe stomach pain again she was given daily blood clot prevention injections which relieved the pain which was denied by a Dr (this happened at previous hospital). No other reason given for injection as she is not in the at risk group. The hospital stopped her thyroxine
As soon as she went into hospital (225mg) and would not let her see endo (again!) After a week it was restarted which resulted in chest pain ,collapse and mental decline .Sectioned and refused thyroxine stating her thyroid was now normal .After four months gp said he would not do blood tests until November and she didn't need to see endo now .Eyes puffy , stomach pain etc .Insisted on blood test recently which showed tsh 87.02. Gp wanted starting dose thyroxine at 225 mg which he then changed to 150mg after daughter commented about her heart pain and no thyroxine for months! After taking 150mg she felt jittery, couldn't sit and felt detached and strange mentally. She took no thyroxine for two days and felt as she did before. Gp states it will takea month to get her medical records and then he can refer to endo which no doubt will take a few more months .In hospital my daughter heard nurses talking where they said "she'll never see an endo ..She'll just keep getting bounced"
