Ia saw Endo in January, who started a trial of Levo 50mcg & ordered the tests that had been recommended here (folate B12 vit D etc) I left with a blood test form (for March) and an appointment for follow up in May.
I had the March blood test then got a note in the post from my GP saying that he had heard from the Endo & wanted me to call to discuss the results
Yesterday I spoke with the GP who felt all results were 'fine' except vitamin D. He said I would need to buy these from Boots or Holland & Barrett since he could not prescribe VitD without calcium. He declined to tell me the figures & ranges & reiterated that they were 'fine' within normal range.
When I told him my hypo symptoms were not improving & suggested that perhaps an increase in Levo may help, he's aid that my March test result was 'right in the middle of the range' and so no increase was necessary. When i politely protested that my symptoms were preventing me from functioning, he suggested that I discuss it with the Endo.
I don't know if I can hold on until May to see the Endo. They won't bring the appointment forward since her clinics are full & they are 'so busy'. And I have received two letters pushing back the May appointment to different dates & times in May; topped off with a letter received yesterday telling me my May appointment has been cancelled & that they will be in touch soon with a re-scheduled appointment. I was in tears to receive this and feel isolated, alone and helpless. Even my family is not at all understanding, sigh.
I was hesitant to post because I saw a lady who had written a blog criticising folk here for 'ranting' and moaning; that made me so sad because, after suffering in silence alone and depspairing, I had huge hopes that I had finally found a lovely community of people who 'got it' who listened & offered support.
I hope very much that one day I will feel well & strong enough to offer others the strength & support they need,; to pay it forward in gratitude of the support others have offered here.
That is about as much 'positivity' I can muster right now, sorry.
