So I wanted a full blood count done last year as I was feeling so weak and tired all the time I was concerned I may be anemic or have hypothyroidism or something ?
my doctor said tests were very expensive and I should wait and see how I felt in 3 months 🙄
I felt very frustrated but accepted the situation and struggled on telling myself I must keep trying to get strong and do more exercise and loose more weight etc so time went on and I guess I normalised all my symptoms and didn’t go back to the doctors for a test until last week prompted by a new symptom of feeling dizzy and unbalanced
I didn’t actually see a doctor I just spoke to the receptionist who spoke to the doctor who authorised the test so I just saw the nurse who took my blood
Fast forward to yesteday so get a letter from the doctor saying my test results show I have hypothyroidism
She suggests I contact the surgery again 6 months for a repeat blood test and we can take it from there 🤔
So I have to put up with this for another 6 months !
Is this normal to have to wait 6 months ? Why ?
Anyone’s thoughts and replies very welcome please !
