This morning I had a long awaited appointment with an endocrinologist. Background: long history of hypo symptoms, borderline blood results. Looking at my blood results, posters on here think I'm probably hypo.
Endo says no. Hypo symptoms are dead common and 1/3 of people in the street would be diagnosed if you went on symptoms alone. Possibly subclinical hypo, but a trial of thyroxine would likely produce no effects or just a placebo. He suggests I have CFS. To be fair to him, he was great; actually listened and took me seriously, but CFS would be the worst possible diagnosis - no hope of any relief from symptoms that have driven me to the brink of suicide. It's only this site and the hope of today's appointment that has kept me going for the past few months.
So. My plan before the appointment was to buy some NDT online and start self medicating. Is it even worth doing that any more or just resign myself to a life as a fat, knackered drain on my family?
