You will never guess what just happened guys. Just had a call back from a doc at my surgery on triage as i put a call in about kidneys aching. Anyway he was obviously looking at my records whilst talking and picked up my now diagnosed autoimmune problem and .......wait for it.......he is sending me dowm hospital with urine sample and ......this is the best bit..... He said lets get ALL your bloods checked again. He's doing the flippen lot peeps. B12, ferritin, folate blah blah.....and an even bigger wait for it......my antibodies!!!!!! (Picks oneself up from the floor). He suggested it without me even prompting him!!!!!!
Cant believe i have spoken with a doc who knows what bloods i need done. Had to giggle after conversation tho cus he wanted me to get down hozzy for tests today and i said i couldnt cus had my levo and would give skewed results. He didnt know that..... Surprise surprise.... think I gave him something to research lol. He also said what i have sounds morelike graves!!!!!!! Huh???? BUT he wouldnt have had time enuff going thru my records to come to that conclusion.
He is a senior partner of the surgery and rarely see him myself but i have taken mum to see him. As he seemed to know the bloods that we sufferers need to have has thrown me for six so i think i am gonna give him a chance in helping me. I mean, cmon, peeps how often do we find a doc that will say "lets check the whole lot including antibodies"!!!!!! That has to be a good sign surely that he might know something? I said basic tsh thyroid bloods i normally have done are useless for sufferers cus they dont say what is really going on. When i asked what he is testing for, he rolled off everything on OUR list!! Probs is not seeing untl 5th jan for results although that isnt far away is it! Kinda feeling hopeful at the moment. Fingers crossed that i might have found a gp with a little knowledge
