Firstly I have posted on here a few times now and everyone is SO helpful so helpful so thank you!
Apologies if you have read/followed posts from me before and I'm repeating myself. To cut a long story short I've had a number of blood tests (incl Medichecks) which demonstrate that my Free T4 is lower than range (7.8 and range is 7.9-16 / 11.9 and range is 12.0-22) TSH sits in normal range each time.
Private Endo did tests too and is now not contactable for my results. I'm battling to get them back.
Went to GP who keeps sending me away with an 'anxiety/depression' diagnosis despite me mentioning and questioning my symptoms (dizziness, tinnitus, headaches, tiredness, forgetting what I'm saying mid sentence, excessive coldness etc). They said 0.1 out of range is not significant.
Has anyone successfully convinced a doctor to allow them to trial medication and if so what sort of approach did you take to get them to agree to this trial?
What are my rights as a patient regarding this?
Many of you have given me some great web links and articles to share with GP but just wondered what personal experiences you have had.
