Hi everybody, had the most interesting and funny, visit to Endo to--day. This was my first visit to him in year's. My Dr sent me to see him because i am so under par most of the time even though he say's my tests show i am now at optimum levels, ( will post those after this ) he appeared to remember me which was quite interesting as i haven't seen him in 7 year's, and that then was because i had an overactive thyroid, which he treated with R/Active Iodine. Upon sitting down he enquired as to why i needed to see him ?? referal stated that i had a Thyroid problem, so continued to exemplify this by giving him some background history on when it became so underactive, and produced my resent results upon which he looked at me stupid and asked what my problem was?? my results showed that i did not have a problem so there was nothing he could do to help me. I then went on to tell him that i indeed did have a big problem when in fact it was very under four years ago, to which he argued and got quite angry with me stating that it was impossible for me to have developed an underactive thyroid ?? hello, is anybody home there, wow, what a stupid assumption and comment. He stated again that he wanted proof that i had ever been underactive. I don't have the proof i told him as the Dr never gave me the results she just showed them to me. He then commented that in fact it must have all been in my head and i am wasting his time, did i have the reading s in my memory, no i don't, well then you cannot possibly be treated for Hypothyroidism without some proof, as i do not believe you. Wow, it only got worse when he asked what in fact had i been taking if i had been taking anything for it. When i told him it was NDT, he hit the roof and went on to tell me that we are all Conspiring against him and all the other Endo's as NDT is in fact a waste of time and money and i am wasting his. Wow you can imagine how distressed i was becoming, a COnspiracy hey, thats the best yet, he also stated that he had been reading all our Blog sites and it was quite evident that we were conspiring against him and all other Endo's. My husband was with me and he burst out laughing, and i looked on in horror wandering what in the world was happening to make him so defensive and angry with me. My husband thought you may all find this quite amusing as my husband did. I went on to ask what on earth did he think was wrong with me then, ( i had to get something for my money ) to which he stated he had no idea, perhaps i was suffering from depression to which i answered that i wasn't until i walked into his office to which again my husband started laughing, and then so did i because i have had no proper sleep for so long and thought a laugh would be the best thing i could do for my-self. I asked his advice on Magnesium for sleep which again horrified him as he said he had never heard such rubbish and surely i would be getting some from my food, i then asked if it was possible i had Thyroid Cancer, ( i was desperate for some type of consultation, or insight ) he was again horrified that i could think such a thing and how did i think i would get something so horrid, that it would be impossible for me to get it ????? wow wow wow. "One flew over the Cookoo's nest to-day, and it wasn't me ) . I left there with a name and address of another Dr to see for CFS. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, better than nothing. My Husband nearly wet himself laughing all the way to the car with this wonky tired wife next to him, and every body looking at us. Hope you all got a laugh from this i just had to let off some steam. Now, the last test result, but before i forget, his last statement as i walked through his door was,, "Don't ring me, i will ring you " . TRUE. and no charge.
