I wrote some time ago about how I was trying to get my hypothyroidism diagnosed but to no avail.
I continue to feel unwell and extremely tired. I had loads of advice from other bloggers and TUK people for which I am eternally grateful. I was the highest scoring volunteer on the TUK research programme but getting absolutely nowhere with my GPs except to be refered for a test for Altzheimers (I didn't take up their offer at the time). NOW I have a new GP and decided that instead of kicking the traces I will play to their tune. So I booked an appointment to be tested for Altzheimers. I was told that I didn't have the dreaded disease. The doctor has now booked me in for the full monty of blood tests and any that I wanted. Unfortunately as I was taken by surprise I was unprepared and couldn't remember the tests I'd been advised to ask for. I could only remember B12 and T3. So now I have an appointment on May 2nd for my bloods and then back to see the doctor on the 8th. I felt that she had listened to me but I also feelthat she will be tied by the results. I pray for the day that the NHS will allow me to be treated for my symptoms and not on blood test results.
