I have just arrived home from a review of blood test results with my GP, I have hypothyroid and Hashi's.
She said my levo is working and plans to keep me on the dose I am on.
The blood test results show only "serum TSH level 1.02mIU/L (0.35-4.94mIU/L)". I am obviously in the range, so she said there is nothing else that needs to be done.
I still suffer from debilitating headaches among other symptoms of a lesser significance, and asked to be referred to an endocrinologist in the hope that they might know more about the relationship between hypo and headaches, but she refused, saying there is nothing that they would do that she couldn't.
She initially rejected that I had Hashi's and said only this time when I pointed out the result from last time showing that antibodies are present that she must have been wrong!
Apologies for being frustrated but quite honestly I have had enough of GPs being so incompetent!
I was therefore wondering if anybody else has had a difficult experience with a GP in relation to symptoms not disappearing because of being told that "they're too common" amongst the general population to be able to act upon. Does anyone have any tips for getting rid of symptoms? I have also been gluten free for about two months now, and I have noticed no change.
Thanks in advance!
