So ....... as expected, nothing wrong with me. ........ aaaaaaargh!!!!!😡😡 My GP was very sympathetic (her words) but cannot prescribe based on the current results (again, her words). I pointed out that she could treat the symptoms but she still insisted not. Told her that I intended to self-medicate but I felt she was on my side somewhat . Said I wasn't prepared to go on like this any longer (more than 3 years now), because the weak, indecisive, unconfident(?), moany person I am now is NOT me at all!!!
We agreed that I would again get a private blood test done because the lab didn't test T3 & T4 levels as my TSH was "in range". This is being done tomorrow so should have the results back early next week and I'll decide then whether to see the GP again or make an appointment with a private endocrinologist BUT I'm open to any other suggestions or advice from the lovely people on here. My results were
TSH = 1 mU/L. (0.35-5.0)
Serum thyroid peroxidase antibody concentration (!) = 6 lU/mL. (0-50)
Vit D level = 74 nmol/L. No range but says low status may be adequate or borderline.
Random cortisol (not before 9am) =. 138 nmol/L. (9am= 140-690)
Lots of other bits but I really don't know which are relevant.
I would be so glad for any advice - I can't even drown my sorrows anymore because for the last few months anything more than one small glass of wine leaves me feeling like c**p fir the next couple of days!
