I attended the pain clinic today and was pleasantly surprised that the dr agreed that I have underlying issues that need sorting (low Vit D, thyroid antibodies etc., TSH not under 1) that could be causing me to feel so crappy.
I spent 4 hours in A&E last night following 2 hours of palpitations which the dr today said could be caused by the 40mg of amitriptyline I am taking daily. He changed it to duloxetine which is for pain but with less side effects apparently.
He suggested seeing an endocrinologist but the ones at the local hospital (even private) appear to be diabetes specialists.
I don't want to wait ages for an appt only to find he/she talks out of his/her hat (polite eh?).
So, please, anyone who knows a thyroid savvy dr could you please let me know. I have emailed Louise Roberts but would love a personal recommendation from someone who has found a good dr.
