When I saw my Endo recently my husband came with me of which I was pleased he did because he heard for himself just how they talk down to you! The Endo looked at my blood test from 3 months before! he said well they are all in range so we will keep you on the same meds, but as I told him that I still have trouble in sleeping, my throat tongue & mouth are really sore and my joints really ache! His remark was that so many people blame the thyroid for things that are nothing to do with it, he did not even look at my throat,check my paulse or anything else!
When I then said that my blood test showed at the top of the form the lab suggested supplementing with B12+ iron he turned and tapped my notes on the table! and said that my body might have an infection at present so he will look at it on my next appointment, and to go away now and stop trying to understand blood test that I know nothing about. ( By the way my GP put on her referral that I keep a close eye on blood tests) So he then wanted me on my way! So I will supplement myself.
