I'm shaking!! Finally after over 3 weeks and emails my endo has called me to discuss my questions or basically lecture me and ignore everything I'm saying!
All he could go on about was my TSH, I'm afraid I'm not going to get anywhere with this man
After pretty much shouting down the phone, trying to make him understand, I have got him to agree to leave me on my 20mcgs of T3 instead of 10(along with my 50mcg T4) for 6 weeks until I have another blood test.
I think he agreed just to get me off the phone but basically he says everything rests on the TSH and if under normal values it is dangerous and I am taking big risks. He says if the T3 I'm on isn't doing the job then there is probably another underlying cause to my symptoms which will just be masked by increasing my metabolism with T3.
He also couldn't tell m e why my TSH had gone from 0.14 on 10mcg on my first test to 1.46 on 10mcg on my second test but was just happy about this as it meant my TSH was in range!!! Despite the fact that my symptoms had also started to return on this dose, HELLOOOOO, doesn't that mean anything??
So, it looks like I have 6 weeks to try and work out what the hell I'm going to do. The thing is, although I'm much better on 20mcg than 10mcg, I'm still not well enough. There's no way he'd give me more if I've got to fight to keep what I've got and he's obviously not read any of the information I left for him at my last appointment with his registrar.
What to do next, I'm getting so tired of fighting but when I'm so close I can't give up.
