It's comforting to know other people are in a similar situation though.
LT - I wish finding another doctor was easy... unfortunately, I live and work locally; work at a doctor's surgery and have worked with most of the other doctors in my area. This only leaves one practice and apparently I'm outside their practice area.
Basically, my doctor's diagnosed CFS and that's the end of the story as far as she is concerned. I'm going to write a letter to her explaining my reasoning behind having further tests (I hate
blood tests - they make me faint - why would I have more than I feel I need to?!). There's a great article on an Australian thyroid website about research done in Norway on 65,000 people, which proved that most people have a TSH of 1.0-1.5 and that anything over 1.5 is "unlikely" to be normal. Think I'll print that out to show the "knowledgeable" ol' doctor!!!
