When the doctor allowed me to say a few words, here and there, i explained that my symptoms of pain, started with the onset of a rapid weight gain and severe insomnia at the same time diagnoses with Pituitary damage, abnormally low Cortisol results and Hashimoto's Disease. I had not been properly evaluated for other missing hormones because a regular Endo does not know how to order proper tests. I explained i had been to 4 Endo's already looking for help. I was diagnosed today with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia! She explained to me that low or missing hormones would in no way cause muscle pain or swelling in my skin!! I then was told i did not need a specialist in Pituitary disease, that an Endocrinologist and good General Practitioner were all i needed. I was then referred to Endo number 5. I was given Lyrica and told to exercise.
To someone who doesn't know better..they would believe this BS!! I was literally stunned. It all so flies in the face, of all Dr. Lowe found during his research. I truly believed that they were more educated than this! Would you believe this doctor is on a list that i obtained from an Integrative Medicine doctor!!! WTF??!!! I literally felt like i was in the Twilight Zone Today!!
