Hi (sorry, long post!),
I posted earlier in the week about my symptoms and previous blood test results. I went to see my GP on Wednesday and she suggested I have Chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS). I asked her what this was and she just said it used to be known as ME. I mentioned thyriod and she immediately dismissed ithe as my last test results were "normal". She suggested that I have a blood test and I went back on Thursday to have them done (not sure what tests she has asked for). She's also referred me to gastro as I've been having stomach problems, but suggested it was IBS.
Unhappy with the outcome of my appointment, I decided to pay to see a private GP. He looked at my previous blood test results, explained what they meant in detail and gave me an examination. He also dismissed thyriod as soon as I mentioned it as my results were normal. He gave me a prescription for some IBS medication to relieve my stomach symptoms and gave me the contact details of two private gastroenterologists if I wanted to make an appointment instead of waiting for my nhs referral. He actually suggested that I may have premature menopause due to all my symptoms (I'm 28) so no idea what to make of that! I'm now more confused than ever!
I've just ordered the finger prick test through Blue Horizon for thyroid to see if that will give me more answers.
Someone please tell me I'm not going mad!
