Made an appointment with my doctor for later this month.
I am nervous that this is just going to be a waste of time.
This is this doctor's last chance. If I can't be helped, then I am changing my Primary care physician!!
This doctor didn't want to raise the dose of my thyroid medicine because my levels show that I am barely Hypothyroid. My symptoms disagree with the numbers. I am chronically exhausted, have the worst brain fog, and I get dizzy sometimes. I have been taking my thyroid pills for nearly 1 year. It took 1 year for me to get the diagnosis in the first place. I think taking the pills for one yr. is more than a fair chance. I am going to ask to be tested for vitamin deficiencies. Someone suggesed testing for gluten allergies as well.
I honestly don't think I am going to get anywhere, but it can't hurt to try. I would switch doctors now but the doctor I want to see is out on leave until July so I have to try to do something in the meantime.
wish me luck. I am going to need it!
