Apparently the endo wrote to both me and the doc in december - I havent got any letters. With VIT D reference range of 50 to 120 (hurray the lab actually did the test this time!) I am at 47 and need to be on short term VIT D for 6 months. Dont know about you, a few weeks is short term not 6 months!!
I told the quack I was coming to see him anyway, as I want to see a different endo, as the one I got sent to by the consultant I saw in the summer, is an antiquated dinosaur that doesnt see the patient, and goes off the reference ranges all the time, despite the numbers being so far apart. That he said it is CFS, and I asked for an explanation, and he snapped at me Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but did not offer any advice or treatment options. I explained that this is the line we should be at, and one level is this far above, and another is this far below, but according to him, as long as they are 'within normal boundaries' they are fine. Yet 2 (!!) different consultants insisted that I needed to see him for treatment! He is refusing that I need treatment as I am 'within the normal boundaries' I pointed out that I have been feeling this way for over a year now, and am at the end of my tether of being passed from pillar to post, and getting angry that my being upset is being passed off as depression.
AND I asked about the pins and needles and numbness in both my hands. He suspects carpal tunnel syndrome, and sent me for xrays, and has given me naproxen anti-inflammitaries to see if they help.
In the meantime, I did yet another quick questionnaire to determine depression, yes that old chestnut. I have to go back in 3 weeks to get the results of these xrays, and he said he will go through my bloods again.
