After about 9 months of trying to tell my GP I was hypo not menopausal I took the decision to self medicate. I've now been taking Thyriod S since the beginning of November & I feel so much better.
I'm on 2 grains currently but suspect I need to up the dose slightly but the GP said she would re-do thyroid bloods early January. So I decided I'd hold off changing the dose till I had my new blood results back.
I had them done last Monday & have just received a call from the receptionist saying the GP wants me to have my bloods done again in 3 months. I haven't actually got the results in my hand yet, I'm picking them up tomorrow. But I'm guessing my TSH has dropped & they a little perplexed as to why.
I haven't advised them I'm self medicating, I was just going to use them for the blood tests as I found the GP I saw to be totally patronising and unwilling to listen. I ended up leaving my last appointment in tears, although I did get a referral to an endo (still waiting for the appointment!)
Incidentally the receptionist said another GP had requested I get re-tested not the patronising one I saw initially.
I'll repost when I get the results but I just thought it was funny that my results are triggering action rather than the usual 'you're in range'.
