I received my lab results and was notified that my Dr got them 2 days ago, i've call twice and my Dr will not call me back to explain my results. the receptionist told me they won't call unless there is a problem, and another receptionist asked if the Dr was SUPPOSE to call me back. From what i found online and my results saying my TSH is 'out of range' i'm concerned.
I've had horrible leg cramps (jumping), tiredness, rcnt nausea, unstable feeling even when sitting down, muscle/joint aches mostly in hands/ankles/feet. i'm 28/f. had my gallbladder removed 1 yr ago.
can someone please look at my results and give an opinion
No offense to anyone here that works in a doctor's office, but they can really be gatekeepers and probably didn't even give the message to the doctor in your case. Your tsh is high, and you have a right to talk to the doctor and express your concern and ask questions.
I would either set a follow up appointment, or just leave a message without getting into conversations with the staff----"Please leave a message with the doctor to call me---if they ask what it's regarding, just say I have a question about something he told me at my appointment, and that's it. If not, leave a message with the doctor's evening service to call.
My husband once had an emergency, and tried to get an appointment with a doctor that not only knows him, but is a good friend of a friend, quite --the staff refused to give him an appointment. On the weekend my husband left a message with the service---the doctor called my husband immediately, and begged his forgiveness, gave him his personal cell for next time............it could be the doctor, but sometimes it's the staff.
Looks like you are going to have to keep harassing your doctor. Make an appointment if you have to. I'm guessing the range for your free T4 is 0.8 to 1.8, if so, 1.0 is low and that combined with your high TSH and symptoms, you need to be treated for hypothyroidism. Good Luck!
Someone from my doctors office called 40 minutes after they closed saying the doctor wants me to schedule a followup appt and will not discuss my results over the phone. But since they r closed I have to wait till tomorrow to make the appointment.
