Thank you for your advice. As you said, it's really difficult in persuading your GP to do a referral especially with something like hypothyroidism. The last time I went to speak about
an alternative medication I was told I was bullying him into giving me a med that he didn't want to prescribe, and that there was a baby outside that he had to see??? When you're up against that sort of reluctance and insensitivity you really feel like not bothering with GP's and just sorting it out yourself. I do appreciate that toying with meds is potentially tricky, but I'm in a situation where my GP doesn't want to know, and I'm suffering daily. I can't change GP's as no one is taking on in my area, so I'm basically stuck with all these problems and know one to help me sort it out....it sucks!!!
