I feel like I need to rant. Went back to see another doctor yesterday because I have a noticeable hard bit on my neck, the gland I assume. Having a flare up that started on 29th June. Thought I was getting a horrible flu but not bunged up. So pain, knackered, hoarse voice, no energy couldn't make work. Doc increased my thyroxine to 75mcg on the 3rd July. The doc I saw yesterday felt my neck and told me everything feels fine and she suggests that because my gland is struggling to work it has changed in form and that is why it is noticeable?????. So while I was there and remembered I asked her about my bloods and suggested that my free t3 and 4 be checked at the same time to ensure that they get a clear picture of conversion. She told me that the surgery don't request t3 be checked, it's up to the lab to do it if they feel it necessary depending on the tpo, but she will look into the t3. Apparently I have to get my bloods checked in August but last doc I saw didn't tell me this, I was just to go back to see him if I still felt like c**p Honestly!!!!!!. I digress, this doctor yesterday didn't seem clued up because I had to assure her that the hoarse voice was all down to the thyroid and well documented. She wanted to know how long it had been this way and seemed bewildered when I told her 23 years but, been happening every couple of months for the last three years and was this way for 4 months before starting thyroxine 50mcg on 4th April. She offered ENT, but been there and was given speech therapy (all before diagnosis) then told I was tensing my muscles, therefore doing it to myself and making my voice be this way. Doc doesn't believe there is anything to warrant an ultrasound or scan. I am so p****do off with it all. I understand that it is a long road to get everything on the right track, not looking for a miracle, but it has taken 23years to get diagnosed. I'm just so tired, don't know how long I can keep working, but I can't afford to stop. Oh, I have taken advice from here and started gluten free. Early days yet. I'm sure I wanted to do more of a spout, but alas I have lost my words.
