Hi Im new to this and not sure if Im posting in the right area??
History... Went to doctor 2 years ago after being ill for 6 months (cold, flu, chest infection etc.)
I begged to get my blood tested as I felt so ill. He reluctantly agreed.. I think just to get rid of me. Anyway few days later get a call from GP telling me I needed to be seen that day!! just to come in and no appointment needed. Had me freaked out! Well test showed my thyroid was over active and dangerously high!! nearly 700.. which did not mean anything to me??
I was just glad there was something wrong and it wasn't in my head.
Waited 5 months to see Endo who gave me medication for treatment which I was treatment resistant to and 15 months after diagnosis was given iodine treatment.
At this point I was expecting fab results, but now 9 months later feel worse. On 125 thyroxine and sent back to a new Endo today.
Have to say I expected a fight because of how I felt!!! but he listened to me and is sending me for all types of blood tests on Friday morning ( so quick, IM AMAZED!)
He is willing to treat whatever these results show!!! WOW..
He also explained that because I was so ill with overactive thyroid and also diagnosed with Graves he believes I may have chronic fatigue??? although he is happy to look at T3.
This is the first time I feel someone has listened to me and he has also emailed me lots of information tonight!!!
Has this happened to anyone else??
