Thank you for such an informative response. I have just emailed my doctor with regards to the TRab test. Based on my symptoms, things are not getting better. I hope she agrees to the test and even more, based on the results will allow me to begin treatment again sooner rather than later.
I’m finding it really hard to navigate this process with medical professionals. I think she’s a very reasonable human being but without sounding overly dramatic, I’m in pretty good distress and to “sit and wait” feels very unkind. My gut says she may not know what to do for me which is why she offered me Ambien and want’s me to wait instead of just starting treatment again and that really scares me. She’s my 3rd endo and I’m beginning to believe that the problem may be that I have expectations that while reasonable, aren’t realistic based on the current knowledgebase of most endos. I’m just afraid that it’s only going to get worse from here.
Enough about that. Thank you for the response and just maybe, your prompting me to prompt her for the TRab will get me further than I am at the moment. I really appreciate that.
