You have any supportive thyroid suffering family members? There is nothing in the rules saying you can not bring your mom, four aunts, and cousin to stare down your MD. If I could I would get in the MDs face for you, but I am across the country.
My family has henpecked and brow beat endos in three states though... Heck. I had one of the five I fired cross the street to avoid me once.. I just waved and smiled. Get riled up, get angry.. You deserve better, do not let them treat you like an ignorant speck of dust!
You know your body better than they do for crying out loud, you have to live in it every day! My mom is three states away. I have consulted with her endo via phone conference during appointments. Her second one is cool, the first one didn't believe the don't make me come over there comment. Needless to say the next day me and two of her sisters were in the waiting room for hours. We got the order for the blood work though.
Sometimes being nice and polite works other times...
It pays being a scotch Irish German Viking decent 5'2" female with multiple second degree black belts and an in your face attitude....
You are not alone and we believe you. Hopefully we can provide an outlet to vent and keep going. Post a new thread asking for an md recommendation in your area. You might get a lead on a GOOD knowledgable thyroid savvy md!
Miracles do happen!
