Hi, I have come on for a rant to vent my frustration with like minded people ,I know at least someone will listen..Appologies in advance.Before I start I have been hypothyroid for 5 years and never felt well,I am on 100mg of levothyroxine.
So I have just come back from my doctor who will not test to see if I have antibodies for my thyroid, will not text me for coeliac disease even though I had a recommendation off coeliac.org.uk to be tested,(she said its my ibs) i am breathless and have palpitations after going up my stairs exhausted daily.she said there is nothing wrong with me as everything is in range (my iron and vD are at the very bottom of the ranges) she said even if they were at the top I wouldn't feel any better.She then asked if I was depressed argh!!!!!!I told her I threw them away last month.She said she would refer me to an endo but will struggle as there is nothing wrong with me.
I am just scared that the endo will be just as useless as her.Can anyone advise what questions I should ask.I felt confident today going to see my doctor she would listen and help me out after researching for three weeks.I got loads of advice from here and Facebook groups and went in armed with notes. I have never felt so angry with a doctor and am completely disgusted with how she treated me. It's like doctors are the enemy. I just gave up in the end ,at least I am being referred. Does anyone have any experience with Salford Royal? I actually work there in pharmacy aseptics so I can get help being referred quicker through occupational health.
If this fails I will self medicate
And breathe 😊 I feel better already
