Breif history is that I had my thyroid removed 10 years ago and have been on medication ever since. First couple of years on thyroxine thyroid medication were up and down, next 6 perfect. Last 2 have been up and down again with various symptoms, doctors appointments, blood tests every 6 weeks, adjustment of medication then go home and wait 6 more weeks – only to still have the symptoms. 6 weeks is a really long time when your food isnt digesting, have rapid pulse, anxious, freezing cold, not sleeping and generally a complete b* to live with (the symptoms go on and on and on).
So I am just after a good doctor who can explain the thyroid medication to me as I still don’t know much about it. I would love it if the dr was a gp so could look after my other health needs and see that things might be related. But I see I might be dreaming, and am happy to see a specialist. My oncologist is in Syd and is getting on in years so would be good to have someone local. But just want someone that takes the symptoms seriously and realises that it interferes with your whole life.
Hopefully someone on RiotAct has been there and can tell me who is good. Live Northside but happy to travel.
Any help would be gratefully received. Hope everyone’s enjoying their Sunday
