so I went to see the doctor this morning as he told me previously my tsh levels were FINE. but I'm still getting all the symptoms of hypothyroidism I've was diagnosed 6 years ago and have been on100mg a day since. I went in with an open mind as I've had many battles with the doc over this . I asked him to refer me to a thyroid specialist. ..well you would think I just robbed his house..why do you want to see one I've told you its fine I'm the doctor your looking for something that's not there. ..blah blah blah ..my reply yes you are the doctor but this is my body and no one knows how it feels better than me.. well after an awkward 5 minutes he did yet another blood test to test tsh ...oh my god and he wanders why I want to see another doctor. .no t3 or t4 tests as aparrently you don't need it ..I had to stop myself laughing in his face. well I refused to move till he listened to me . so on return of the results he will look into reffering me. ..so will look forward to next Monday for another battle with the doctor. why is it do hard ..All he keeps asking is if I suffer with depression. .well had had to stop myself from saying not till I walked in here..why is he trying to have me committed instead of helping me.
