Not been on here for a while, so hi to everyone again.
I few months ago I was tested for kidney stones but turns out I don't have them my urologist said he would write to my GP recommending that I be referred to a endo as my parathyroid results are high.
Went to see my waste of space GP as a follow up and asked about the referral to the endo, his reply was that it is not necessary as I have low Vit d and that would make my parathyroid result high, is this right.
I have pondered this for a couple of months whilst taking large doses of Vit d (2000 mg) which GP told me to take for 3 months then go back for blood test.
Now, do I have blood test while still taking the supplement or after I have finished it and if so how long after?
GP still refuses to test my T3 insists it tells them nothing even with the evidence I have printed off from here and taken to him. Feel like a complete hypochondriac and a moaning misery, my get up and go got up and left, it's my birthday tomorrow and the family are taking me out, but I would rather stay at home in the warm dosing on the sofa, I'm 55 not 85!
I have also had some new problems I don't know if they are related, not been to docs, what's the point. My heart races even when I walk a short distance ie from my living room to my bedroom, I don't live in a mansion just a small bungalow not sure if this is just because I am so unfit and I get this kind of sore throat but in my neck not the back of my mouth like a cold, it's like a ball stuck in my throat and I can't swallow it down, it lasts a few days then goes, I havent got a goitre, yet anyway I'll await that joy I suppose.
Sorry for the long post but I tend to just "get on with it" as can't stand keep hearing myself complaining, forgot to say I have hypothyroidism and take 50mg Levo dose been the same since diagnosis some 4 years ago.
All help appreciated especially if someone knows a GP who actually understands thyroid problems or a decent endo in the West Sussex area, need to get sorted as started making errors at work and know in my heart I'm not upto the job like this 😢
