just been to see nhs endo as my dr will not prescribe under current private doc. Says he might prescribe if nhs endo diagnoses me as hypothyroid. Well guess what? He wont prescribe, I am not hypothyroid,( original bloods were within range) and I now have to go for testing of pituitary and high oestrogen.
My periods stopped when I was 40, 7 years ago, and I have suffered with fibrocystic breast disease for the past 20 yrs which incidently has improved enormously on thyroxine! Prescribed by my private doc.
Before I start the gamut of tests that I now have to have, does anyone know of any research of what causes what. Does hypothyrodism cause high oestrogen or does high oestrogen cause low thyoid?
