Hello I posted a month ago for the first time I'm very frustrated with my Drs surgery, I submitted in writing 3 weeks ago that I wanted a print out of my thyroid blood tests for the past four years just been to the Drs and it still Isn't done. Last week I had 5 migraines and I am getting demented with the fatigue, headaches, migraines, aches and pains in my arms and legs, brain fog- some nights I can't even manage to help my son with his homework and I have a degree. I am so forgetful, cold all the time, and cannot lose weight no matter what diet I try. So I have decided to try and find an Endo. privately as I am so fed up with my Dr/ Drs with the neuro dept. at hospital who are only interested in writing prescriptions for my migraines, I've tried many of them but the side effects are ridiculous, nausea, insomnia, dizziness, nightmares, over active bladder and nothing apart from TOPIRAMATE reduced my migraines significantly but I had to come off them as I was getting depressed, even suicidal I've gained over a stone and a half in a short space of time trying out Pitzofen and gabapentin for my migraines which didn't work. Is it the norm now for all Drs to write you a prescription, no investigation, no tests ,no referrals to other departments to me this feels like papering over the cracks !
Can anyone recommend a good Endo in Scotland I will travel if I have to.
