So a week ago I had an appt at the chronic pain clinic (recommending meds I don't want and very little else) and the next day I had gp appt. Lovely man but that's as good as it gets; why oh why can't they do the thing that might help instead of the exact opposite?
I got the medichecks blood tests done and posted them here, Clutter helpfully suggested a small increase in levothyroxine might be beneficial so I asked would he consider it, would he hell. It's a controversial area which may require a full appointment on its own to discuss it and you have been discharged by endocrinology (and an increase in levo is very unlikely). But here have all the pain meds you want, what's that, the anti d and mood stabiliser you've been on for years aren't working, you want to stop them, well sure here try a different one, we can mess around with types and dosage, just say what you want to do. I want to sodding well stop pain meds and anti d's and have something that might just help. But sure that would be ridiculous wouldn't it?!
Refrained from telling him to sod off especially when he said the short list of physical issues I had written down in case I forgot anything was perhaps a little bit of anxiety....
Informed him I wouldn't be there at all but for the fact that my husband had made the appt and came with me. Frankly I wouldn't have bothered as it's a waste of time and I'd rather be dead already... His main concern was my mindset, which might be greatly improved if they actually tried to actively assist with the physical issues... Really at the end of my tether.
But sure who wants to be well anyway... Supposed to get more bloods and go back and see him in 3 weeks, just so he can tell me my TSH is in range.
