Sorry, bit of a rant.
I had a less than great trip to the GP today. Having felt rubbish for months now, I made a list of symptoms as when they happened, and I remembered to jot them down to take with me, and got my other half to add anything that he had noticed that I just take for granted these days.
So having gone through the list with her.....
I was asked three times if I was feeling depressed, or stressed. (was by the time I left)
Told it could be menopausal. ( I may well be)
Or I could just have a virus!!! ( I can't have had the same viral symptoms for months, surely)
I spoke to her at length about how much better I am when I'm on a higher dose of thyroxine, to which she agreed with me!!! So feeling hopeful I asked if she would put it up again if only by 12.5mg, I got a very definitive NO!
So I pushed her for a reason why if she agreed that I was better when I'm slightly over?
Has anyone else had there GP refuse to put up there Thyroxine saying that if your TSH is too low it can cause Osteoporosis, and would be unethical for her to up it due to the long term effects.
FFS with everything else that is wrong with me its a risk I'm willing to take, if could function normally, rather than living with the tiredness, insomnia, aches, pains, mood swings, and newly diagnosed Diverticular Disease (not yet needing surgery, but not far off) etc. etc. ect that make mine, my other half and my kids lives miserable
Last time I asked she told me it was not good for my heart! (beginning to think she makes it up as she goes along)
The only good thing that came out of it was that she agreed to do another full set of bloods including T3 hormones Vit levels etc. and then would revue it.
Sorry rant over, just get so frustrated (not depressed or stressed) and although my husband is amazing he doesn't always get it, so needed to let off a little steam.
