I've been 'dropped' by my endocrinologist!! Yes, that's right you read this correctly. After waiting to see my endocrinologist for about a month I sent an email yesterday about thyroid disorders and the link between CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia hoping this would provide one evidence to support my diagnosis. Now, I also mentioned Dr Sarah Myhill in this email which is probably why I got dropped!!
I received a phone call from the endocrinologists secretary this morning explaining that tomorrow's appointment has been cancelled. I was also told I was on a different page to my endocrinologist and it would be best if we stopped treatment immediately. Now, bear in mind this endocrinologist is an NHS and private consultant who comes highly recommended. I'm amazed that a patient can be dropped like this. Her secretary mentioned GMC in her phone call which may shed some light on why I have been dropped. Dr Myhill has been investigated over 30 times by the GMC with no charges found against her!!
As you can imagine I'm fuming about this situation and wondering what to do next. Maybe an official complaint but what's the point? By the way I'm seeing a 'functional' doctor in December which means I may get somewhere then. In the meantime what should I do?
