Had a call the other day to go for a medication review never had that before but as I rarely go the docs thought I should go. My opinion is that it's a box ticking exercise and when you sit in the waiting room and see people being turned away cause there are no appointments I'm thinking wouldn't the doc doing reviews be better employed seeing needy patients. Anyway doctor I saw was very efficient she went over the tablets I'm on and when I take them and did I understand why I was taking them. She asked if I was happy taking the tablets I'm on and I told her, no, thyroxine doesn't seem to address my thyroid probs but endo is happy for me to carry on with all the rubbish symptoms because he's following NHS guidelines even though he had said he would try me on t3 medication then back tracked when latest blood test were 'in range' but I felt total crap!! I asked her to read and clue up on thyroid disease and help us to get the treatment we deserve. She was leaving GP practice to work in hospital so maybe if she comes in contact with thyroid sufferers she will think twice about normal range results.She probably thought I was a bit of a know it all but I'm sick of hearing about restrictions and NHS guidelines like I said to her I want to be able to lead a normal life not sit at home aching all over feeling sick having palpitations and hot flushes. Like we all know on here they don't have the answers do they?
Thanks for listening and reading my rant/ post! Hope everyone is as well as they can be
