If you read my profile you’ll see I have a long history of not getting a diagnosis (of anything) yet symptomatic for years (symptomatically under-active - seriously there is nothing hyper about my symptoms)....but docs think possibly Graves. Many of you have been very kind and responded a lot to my posts in relation to it being Hashimotos (which my GP confirmed, and since unconfirmed by 2 x NHS Endos) . The most recent Endo is throwing ‘hyper’ and ‘graves’ around yet won’t test the necessary antibodies for it....instead she just redid TSH, T4 & T3 & is sending me for a bone density scan - so seems to me she has made her mind up and is just assessing the level of damage caused so far. I am at my wits end & don’t understand why she won’t actually test appropriately to confirm her diagnosis.
So for those of you with a long history of or experience in hyperactive and Graves diagnosis, from my profile, my symptoms and my recent blood tests what are your thoughts? (Most recent bloods underlined)
Ps. I know all about medichecks and bluehorizon but don’t have the funds to go get private bloods so alas I am at the mercy of the NHS & am trying to educate/arm myself with enough insight to convince them to test me appropriately before throwing out a rash diagnosis.
