I've just got back from my GP and I am so mad.
Basically I discovered to be hypothyroid in99 and later to have the Hashimoto disease.
Of course I've seen a lot of endo in Italy where I came from...also wasted a lot of money because there we only have the levothyroxine and nothing more. No T3 or, of course, armor...
Well I have to see an endocrinologist sometime cause I need to decide which dosage it's good for me as I've always been on 100-125 but lately I've been having a quick heart rate and I have to change (all by myself), the dosage.
Well this seems a joke... This morning the answer of my Gp has been:" your values are NORMAL, so I can't write you a referral... Your problem is anxiety but... You can't change your dosage by yourself !"..
Yes because always being ill, not being able of losing a kilo even if I exercise like a maniac everyday and Always being on diet since I remember.. Or simply being depressed and with no sexual desire at all (sorry hubby), or having a low ferritine etc etc Well of course I'm just crazy and it can't be that MAYBE I could try to change medication or dosage? No because OF COURSE I am stupid and I'm not able to recognise the symptom from my body which are telling me" something is not working"?
I'm so mad! And the ironic thing was that I asked my Gp to write me a referral to see this endo privately! Not paid from the NHS! Well I don't understand...
