| | Pushed for test! Thanks you guys!
Well, I did it! I may have made the doctor mad, but when I went in today for my thyroid test, I asked the nurse what test he has ordered, she said TSH, T4 uptake. I said, well, I was really hoping he would run TSH, free T4, free t3, and antibodies. She said, "Which test is that?" I said I don't know what it is called, but it includes those. She couldn't find it in the book, so went to ask the doctor. She came back and said, he said OK, but you insurance may not pay for it. She made me sign an insurance release form and said they would do it. I did explain why I wanted it done. She said the doctor suggested perhaps I should see an endocrinologist. I don't know if that is his way of getting rid of me or telling me he is now over his head. But never the less, I will now finally know whether or not my suffering for the last four years is thyroid related or not. Thanks to all of you, I kept searching until I got someone who would run the test and had the courage to keep pushing. I should get the results in a few days and will actually get a copy this time and post the results. Thanks again!
