Hi. I’ve been diagnosed an underactive for a few years now and am taking levothyroxin (75mg) . I often feel like there is a lump in my throat - not always, it comes and goes - but often feel tired. A few years ago I did an adrenal saliva test that showed I had adrenal fatigue. I am menopausal. My GP ignored the adrenal fatigue completely and is fixated with my cholesterol level. She has put me on statins and then more statins. I’ve been getting dizzy and light headed a lot.
My GP just sees a fat person and is fixated about my cholesterol. I would like to see a private endocrinologist who might look at the complete picture, that is the menopause, thyroid, adrenal etc. I live abroad but am happy to see someone in the UK.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a good specialist?
Thanks very much.
