Hello everyone, and very highest hopes for the new year, in every way❤️
My last few months have been very trying, and I’ll try to keep it short, but pretty much all the helpful advice I have ever had came from this forum, and I would be grateful for any thoughts before I carry the battle on to 2019.
I became very ill at the end of 2016. Hospital endo diagnosed subclinical hyper because my tsh was so low, but more knowledgeable people here suggested central hypo as t3 and t4 also bottom of their respective ranges. Found that this is often caused by a history of serious obstetric haemorrhage, which I’ve had-tried thyroxine, huge improvement. Asked for nhs second opinion, second opiner just said tough, he agreed with the first one, and refused tests. I went to a private one who prescribed Levo, nhs one then tried to overrule him!
I would be much happier to have nothing more to do with them, except that I have constant (and very depressing) nausea and abdominal pain, which I think may be because I also have secondary hypoadrenalism as well, and my adrenal system is not coping. Dr P thought that too.
My question now is, can you buy oral steroids without a prescription? I’ve now been too ill to work for two years so more private medicine is not an option
Xx all thanks, Ginny
