After the GP rang and told me my TSH was 37, and I should go back to just taking Thyroxine, as "your body was well on that", I rang a couple of days later for the rest of the blood results to be told my TSH was 20.6. When I questioned this, the receptionist said it was correct. I just said I would take it further.
A few minutes later the GP phoned and denied she had told me is was 37, but I told her I had written it down at the time. This is the same GP (not my named GP) who told me I had had a stroke, then took my blood pressure and wondered why it was raised, and then gave me a prescription that I found out were statins. I had not had a stroke, and my cholesterol was 5.2.
She said all calls were recorded and she would check, but a symptom of a raised TSH was confusion (so my fault!). She asked if I was determined to go down the NDT route, asked where I was getting them (I was so tempted to say local drug dealer!) and I told her I was fully being monitored by my GP. She then said something that has worried me - she said very proudly "well, I have diagnosed you with hypothyroidism!" I replied that I had had Hashi's for the last 7 years. Why did she think I was taking Thyroxine?
My named GP is lovely and I have given him info on NDT as he can see the change in me for himself. He is even looking into how he can help me with the cost!!!! So I do not want to change surgery or pee them off with a complaint, but I do think something should be done as the female GP is, in my mind, dangerous. Any advice?
