Diagnosed on 31 Jan 2017. Started on Levothyroxine at 50mcg (due to my age -54). Now upped to 100mcg but have had UTI symptoms & peaks of high temperature/fever for 2 months before starting Levothyroxine. Pivmecillinam antibiotics prescribed but only a 3 day course which hasn't touched the symptoms. Symptoms are burning stinging pain in vulval area not just when urinating. Low abdominal pain, feeling spaced out & high temperature on & off. But never when I've seen a GP (Sod's law!) I've had enough - yesterday was so bad I was seriously tempted to call it a day but the thoughts of my family prevented anything silly! Do any of you have names of good Endocrinologists & Urologists in the Nottinghamshire area? I would like to ask for referrals privately but would be better placed to check with my private insurers if they would cover private consultations.
