I went to yet another GP at our local surgery with new symptoms to add to my thyroid type symptoms to see if I could get some help.
She told the that the dead arm feeling that I now have at the top of my arm is down to age ..I'm only 56.
I thought that having high antibodies meant that you had Hashimotos. I ran off the i fo sheet on the NHS website statijg that if you had Hashimotos it can be treated with Levo. My GP said that her understanding of Hashimotos is having out of range TSH and high antibodies.
She then went on to say until NICE change the ranges for TSH there is nothing she can do for me. She said that she doubted that the ranges would be changed. I expect this would be down to funding as it would mean many sufferes would be able to get meds. S
She was sincere when she said she was so sorry she couldn't help me. Admirable but my symptoms are just getting worse.
Would ssomeone have a link to a medical page that clarifies the definition of Hashimotos?
