I am new here.
I need advice on where I can consult a sympathetic endocrinologist.
I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for the last 15 years. I still have hypothyroid symptoms but can only get prescribed levothyroxine 200mg/day.
My GP admits she is not experienced enough to manage and was referred to local hospital to be told T3 was too expensive to prescribe!! And according to her my bloods are " fine"
Now find I have hypertension to add to my list of symptoms.
I am over weight 11 st 5'2" had a blood test about 6 months ago with showed I was pre diabetic. Cant shift the weight though. I have been gluten free for nearly a year , cut back on the sugar, and gave up smoking 9 weeks ago. And now find I am Hypertensive.
I have carpel tunnel syndrome in both hands / arms shoulders, which disrupts my sleep too. Have had to have wedding ring altered two sizes up so I can wear the thing, as my fingers are swollen.
Feeling really down now as I hoped the referral to Endo would set me on the right track, but it seems I am looking in to a brick wall, and a slow decline with my health.
If anyone has any suggestions of a consultant in Scotland or Northern England who could help, I would be grateful.
