I have just made an appointment to see Dr Chapman on Friday following another disastrous appointment with my GP yesterday whereby he basically told me to go away and suffer (after saying he's tempted to start my on Thyroxine then deciding not to).My FT4 = 11 and TSH = 1.49 which he states are within normal range.He refused to check my T3 levels and to listen to my symptoms stating that my weight and worrying about how I feel is what's making me ill! He also stated loads more rubbish, all of which he contradicted.I am shocked by the lack of knowledge and compassion in relation to thyroid problems. I have read many people on here saying that they have seen Dr Skinner and just wondered if anyone has seen Dr Chapman? I feel so nervous about my appointment probably because of the way that my GP has made me feel like a hypochondriac and am just looking for a little re-assurance I guess. Thanks.xxx
