Hi all, I mentioned last week I had an appt to see my dr and he sounded open to doing more tests but when it came to the appointment that was not the case. As my dr said about my tsh being 8 he decided now to up my dose by 25mg but said we will not test my thyroid again until mid jan. He said no point in doing other tests such as magnesium etc yet as we need to just concentrate on my tsh and if I still feel tired then we will do further testing. He said we need to ensure that my symptoms of tiredness are not mood related as I do have anxiety after all. He said that the labs we use don't recognise t3 and that they only use tsh. I felt really deflated as on the phone he had talked about maybe getting to see an endo too. I also told him at my audiology appt that my hearing is fine but that my right eardrum is not moving as much as it should and that I will need to be referred to ent to which he said oh il wait and see what term they use first before referring you. However I did get an appointment for cbt cognitive behavioural therapy) so atleast it wasnt a total waste of time.
