I agree @ shaws threrefore perhaps we need to remind them of what our clinical symptoms are. Perhaps using the symptom form provided in your link to compare where we were, and where we are now might help. By this I mean ticking all the symptoms that one has experienced over the course of your illness. Then, print out another one with only the symptoms relevant on that day. This can be used to compare general symptom status, also to monitor effectivebess of medication dose or medication changes or additions.
On each new assessment, I suggest that one writes down the current TSH (if available), this might demonstrate to a doctor at which TSH level you feel best at, for example, my best TSH is well below 1 which when a strange doctor views, they always feel the need to interfere with my medication. It's helpful that my endocrinologist writes that my medication should not be altered unless in an emergency situation without prior consultation with her.
When I look at my base assessment (all the symptoms I have experienced over the course of my illness), it's no wonder that doctors immediately want to prescribe psychiatric medication
Thankfully, for me, the addition of a small amount of T3 has helped tremendously, however, I am angry that I can no longer work in the academic community because my thought processes are so slow and concentration levels poor . I am sure the pharmaceutical industry could come up with something to help people like me but that might be too expensive and might mean others might want an alternative which might drive down the sales of cheap levo.
