So I am over it...BUT PLEASE REALISE THAT IS MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, SO I BELIEVE THAT OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE HAD A BETTER OUTCOME.
I am quite upset. I ended up crying during the appt. It was so draining for me to try to ask questions and to be ignored... I was upset that I could not discuss diet or supplements Vit B12, D3 etc...)
Dry sense of humour- maybe??? (I am not used to it, so it felt more like a sarcasm to me, but that's my subjective experience, everyone is different)
I did not go for diagnosis, I knew from my symptoms and blood test result that I am hypothyroid. I wanted to get some general advice how to handle it all, also I had a hope to talk about my gastrointestinal and menstrual issues which I thought are thyroid related.
I have to pay to see gynaecologist and gastroenterologist separately because Dr S is focused only on thyroid despite the fact that co-existing conditions I suffer from could be thyroid related.
I also had a hope for private NDT prescription, so I got that (NDT starting from 1/4 grain for first two weeks, then increasing to 1/2 for another 2 weeks)
I expected more advice to be honest... I ended up feeling more hopeless and lost than before the appointment.
I got the book from the office (£12 instead of £80 on Amazon). I had a quick look through and it feels like it was written by a different person (the tone is kinder, and there is more description of other health related issues than was discussed in person).
I am not sure what to do next? I will try NDT of course but there are so many things that had been left with not comments..
