yes he said it is bad, but he said' i have drawn a blank, it must be autoimmune, we have checked your hormones and iron they are ok.'
he is actually a lovely lovely doctor BUT- it always bugs me that any specialist never seems to go further tan their basic remit-- endocrine electrolites blood count tsh etc etc etc. what about androsteindione, dhea, estrogen,
progesterone,pregnenolone, shbg, 17 o progesterone, there are more i know... i also told him about lyme, and hairloss, he got another older MR. doctor in and together discussing this but both said no lyme wouldnt cause hair loss, i said it does i am
ontwo lyme sites and loads of girls have lost hair, but lyme is 'rare'-- i didnt bother to say to say it is not rare anymore! bless the two of them i could' ve sat themdown and given a lecture-however althought hey have drawna blank---
they are NOW going to investigate lyme hairloss---- and i am very grateful for small mercies in as much as this derm doc is such a lovely approachable man who hasnt fobbed me off, and at least sendingme to infectious disease doc
but having seen this particular infec' doctor before, he knows abso' jackshit.... i told dermo doc, i had a private lyme test but he was quite cross that no one bothered to accept it or follow it up... i have been given a blood test for lyme now but its a bloo d test probably wont show up because they dont know about western blots and proper lyme testing. if it shows up iwill be treated, but i really cant accept antiobi's at this lat e stage and they wont know that is will make me worse all round if they try to give me them.
