Hi I have been borderline and for about 2 years having my blood checked, my TSH is 4.9 now, the time before it was 5.12, I have been feeling ill with thyroid symtoms for years but I thought it must be my age and struggled through. My GP would'nt give me a referral for Dr skinner. But he said I could have a second opinion with a different NHS hospital, the previous hospital said they would not give any medication for my symtoms.
Does anyone know of a good NHS hospital endocrine doctor I could go to, I don'nt mind travelling, or am I wasting my time? Or could anybody recommend a good private doctor, perhaps without a refferal letter, just can't understand why the doctor can'nt give me a trial period of thyroxine or could I buy myself online - I look forwards to any information given, kind regards Jill
