It was me who wrote about 83202 batch Heathermr.
I was feeling so sick and achy and symptoms returning......not coping and loss of confidence again.
It was all at a bad time in one way as I had the bilious attack so no real intake of my T4/T3 and I was due my blood test ( this morning ) for which I don't take meds beforehand.After my test I decided to go without T3 and upped my T4 to 100 mcgs temporarily,today.I am feeling better but too soon to attribute it to that.
Probably just a recovery from my gastric attack.Also have untreated gallstones I shall be querying.......don't want an op unless absolutely necessary though.
Today is the first day since last Saturday that I've been been able to face cooking our meal and am so thankful to my hubby who has been doing the cooking while I was unwell..........I have lost 8lbs!!...... All a help towards the weight loss plan but not ideally the way to do it.(MP T3 patient leaflet mentions Nausea as a side effect)
So my meds are going to need a review when I see my Endo...........I think my test results won't be worth looking at!!
In view of my T3 prescription having a very short shelf life left I am wondering if NHS are scraping the barrel by giving us old stock.Where is it all heading?
My Levo thyroxine issued at the same time has over a year to expiry date.
If the latest guidelines recommend leaving your TSH until it reaches 10 before treating then only needing T4 Levo,then there is much to do in order to safeguard the well being of future sufferers.......I shudder to think about it.
So,Heather good luck with your reporting .....would like to know how you get on.
I haven't approached my Pharmacist yet having only been out for the first time this morning since Saturday,to get my blood test.
I see my GP on Monday.......Oh how nice it would be to be able to have time for a genuine discussion on our concerns about the future of the prompt diagnosis and choice of treatment here in UK........something for the future hopefully.
