I have just come back from the new doctor, and I am back to square one, although, to be honest, I never left square one. He spoke about TSH, and T4, and the "normal range" again, and seemed to be clueless about T3. He kept on telling me that it could be other issues, and not the thyroid because of the "normal ranges" from tests taken in January, and then he told me that it could be psychological.
Then he prescribed me Mirtazapin 30mg and told me to increase my Levo to 37.2mcg. He did not take any tests. He said he would take them in two weeks on the 4th of August. He thinks that my symptoms could be lack of sleep!
I am trying to view things from his perspective. He is trying to look at everything. Then he told ME that I focus too much on blood tests, to which I replied with incredulity that it is THEM (doctors) who trust tests and ignore symptoms.
My husband said that he thought the doctor and I were going to fight. Anyway, I told the doctor that I'm self medicating in two weeks if he doesn't help. He also said that:
1. You can test your thyroid and blood tests any time of the day and it makes no difference whether it is morning or not
2. You test every two to four weeks not 6.
This all took me by surprise since I just looked at a studies saying the opposite.
Why do I keep going to doctors and giving them a chance? Anyway, I will try out this new dose of Levo because the previous 25mcg didn't help. I'm probably not going to take the Mirtazapine. Does anyone have experience with Mirtazapine?
