Hello all. I am sorry for my late reply but I a on heavy medication which is making me sleepy and very drowsy. This is because I had dark and bad thoughts the night before last night. I am glad I do not feel like that now and that the extra medication is helping. These bad thoughts - they don't happen every time I am suffering from PMS but when I do have those thoughts they are horrible. I think of nothing else but those bad thoughts. And I think there is no way out of them. They are horrible because I am in deep deep thought and I clench my hands and be really uneasy. So, these tablets that I am taking now takes away that strong feeling and makes you relax more.
So, when I was with the doctor yesterday I asked about her increasing the thyroide medication as I am taking the cycle every two weeks. She said no. I said that I thought it may help me with it being increased. She said no, my thyroide is fine and thats that! She said that my thyroide is normal.
When I was with Dr M in December of last year she said she would refer me to Gynae. When I saw a locom doctor just a few weeks ago, it was a lady doctor, very nice girl I said that Dr M was for sending me to Gynae but that I have heard nothing yet.
The appointment for Gynae was only sent on the 19th of March. This was the time when I went to the doctors with very sore arms and that I couldn't wear a bra and couldn't use the vacuum cleaner. I wanted to know if these was something I could take for these lumps under my arms. The locom doctor said there was nothing that the NHS could give me or do that I'd have to but Oil of Evening Primrose. I asked if there was something else because I don't only get one lump under my arms but two or three under both my arms at the same time and they are killing me. She gave me an anti-inflamotory as well. She told me not to be taking the anti inflamotory all the time. It was this doctor , the locom that reffered me to Gynae because Dr M did no such thing. And I remember when I went in December she walked me out of her room.
Yesterday she got me in touch with the mental health team and that was all she did for me.....and told me the letter went to Gynae in March. I said it should've been December. She said nothing. In fact, when I went to the doctor's yesterday she told me her mum had just died two weeks prior and that it was hard on all their family because one stayed with her mum each night, taking turns. I apologised by saying I was sorry to hear that.
So, as always when I go to the doctors I get nowhere. What do I do now?
The only thing I don't want to do is become ignorant with the Portadown Health centre and become forceful about this issue with the thyroid. I wouldn't have the guts to ask for a meeting or to say to Dr M, your wrong with my thyroid results.
However, you all know what is right out there, I don't. I don't even know what the letter T stands for and its all confusing.
I could read about now any because of the extra medication I am on. My head is all fuzzy!
In December when I was with Dr M I asked to be sent to Gynae and to the thyroid specialist. She said one of the other, I cannot have both!
Anyway, I am glad that I have been reffered to Gyane. At least I am getting somewhere....4 months later!!!!! And I will be seeing my psychiatrist again too as I have been reffered to him as well.
Thank you Moggie for calling me last night. I am sorry I had to rush off the phone in the way I did. I was going to have an accident - pee myself! My friend Willliam was just leaving. He calls around to see the dog after his day of work every evening. The both of us spoil the dog rotten.
