Sad to say it, but it's likely not possible. She's made up her mind that it can't be your thyroid. Even though she's as wrong as white shoes in winter, you will get nowhere with her until you have suffered longer than anyone should have to.
Find yourself someone more thyroid-knowledgeable who will treat you now.

know the leg cramps could be from your thyroid, too, don't you?
