So my original GP is ringing me today and I plan to tell him that it's my intention to self treat my thyroid.
I'm getting in a panic about what to say, I'm worried I'll just end up getting jumbled up with my words.
I was thinking about saying that whilst I appreciate that my levels aren't quite "outside" the acceptable NHS ranges I've been reading up a lot on the thyroid and how the ranges don't suit everyone. I also thought I'd list my symptoms over the years and how they are increasing and the NHS hasn't managed to resolve any of them but just prescribed more and more meds to mask the problems!
I was also going to say that my plan is to try Levo for a few months on the lowest dose to see if I felt any improvement.
Does that sound ok and is there anything else I should add in?
Obviously it would be easier if he would just agree to a trial of Levo but not sure he will!
