I remember being told by my doctor ' you have GD wendy , dont worry we can get it under control , and your not the worse case I have seen you will be fine '. That was 3 years ago , I have learnt alot about GD since then , It affects every one differently ? what might work for one person will not work for another '. of course DRs do not see this . infact I have learnt that Drs do not no much about GD at all, Endros are not much better ( if you learn all you can about your illness and arrive at the endro all cluded up , they dislike that even more . I used to trust Drs now I dont because I have learnt they twist the truth , they can make you feel insane and do not treat the syptoms if the blood tests say ' your normal'.I remember when I asked to be tested for GD my doctor said ' oh ok just to put your mind at rest i will test you but it will be negitive' Of course it came back positive , a few months later fibro came along to join the party along with depression sinius problems , terrible pain ,anxiety I have got to know my illness ( i dont understand it but I know it and what it can do) When I go to the doctors with a symptom I know is thyroid related I am fully aware the dr will disagree and say 'its anxiety ' I always say ' that is what you told me before you tested me for GD remember dr ' he will carry on looking at my blood results ' well this says abc , I smile and say ' I dont care what that test says , I know how i feel and on it goes a constant battle I do not no of any other illness where you get treated with such disregard , but the battle will go on my friends . If you have syptoms but your test says normal even with a TSH of 0.02 that normal????? well may be for some but I no I need to have a TSH of 1.08 to feel normal , fight your corner do not be pushed about , forgotten about , carry on the battle for your self and other sufferers who will come after you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
