I wondered if anyone can tell me of a sympathetic Endocrinologist at the QE Birmingham or within the West Midlands or Cheshire.
I have been taking NDT, T3, DHEA and a multitude of vitamins and minerals on NHS prescription for around 12 years. The CCG and GP have told me they are unwilling to continue my prescription due to the cost; they say £13,000p.a.
The GP says he can write a private prescription which will cost me £1,300pcm. I am semi retired with a state pension of £100pw and an annual work pension of £4,000p.a. My pension isn't enough to sustain me living a normal life without having to pay for my meds.
Without my meds I am the living dead; my body cannot function. My brain doesn't work (I couldn't even remember my d.o.b.) and my body slows to a virtual stop...e.g. pulse 40bpm and I'm not an Olympic Athlete so it should be around 70-80bpm. The slow pulse puts me at risk of a blood clot and therefore, I could suffer a pulmonary embolus, heart attack or stroke. My temp was 34C.
I cannot go back to that hell. I hope someone has some knowledge they can share with me. I am happy to be contacted directly using my email addy with the appropriate information.
Thank you in advance.
