Hello everyone who has suffered and can offer me some hope! we have managed to to see an endocrinologist privately i have one chance at this! I'm seeing him on friday i need to know what to ask, I've already sent all my lab results and blood tests for the last year plus the nutritional programme I'm on for his perusal....(not sure how much perusing he'll do but hey ho we live in hope!)
I've given a short history of whats been going on when i stopped the meds and why etc....
please has anyone been to see an endocrinologist and asked all the right questions? what was your exp? did you get the answers you needed? did you wish you'd asked something else? are there any positive stories? can you offer me some hope? this feels like its my only hope and I'm terrified! what happened how were you treated did they just bung you on levothyroxine for 3 months? tell you to go back to gp for re test? was anything resolved?
what if he doesn't listen? what if he does the 'you need HRT and antidepressants mantra?' what if its all a waste of time?...im so scared that this is going to cost so much and we will be no further forward..
i am literally doing absolutely EVERYTHING I POSSIBLY CAN to help myself!! gluten free, dairy free, try to exercise and drink loads of water, i don't drink i don't smoke, i take my supplements and vitamins RELIGIOUSLY! its all cost a fortune and we are DESPERATE DESPERATE for some answers!!
if this all goes wrong...i think we will end up divorced....I know ill be devastated if i don't get some help ......my hubby can't take much more..
its been HELL I'm sure you ALL know what its like.....
ANY advice will be so much appreciated
TIA and thanks for listening to me again!
