Leah I know exactly how you feel! My GP still refuses to
discuss or consider the fact that I may be hypo, and wouldn't
dream of prescribing for me. That worries me for the future. I
have had surgery while on Armour and HC and was ok
because they let me keep my meds to take myself, but I was
in a private hospital and don't know if the NHS would have
treated me differently. This was also before Dr Skinner was
going through the GMC nausea and he'd provided my
prescription! It's not a way to live unless necessary.

What would you do if you reduced your dose to the amount
your GP wants and then felt much worse? That might actually
make things easier, because it would at least give you an
answer either way. But you shouldn't be in this position to
start with, you should be getting the correct treatment, not
having to wonder what to do.

Have you read Dr Lowe's website and theories? Or anything
about Wilson's thyroid syndrome? They both seem to think
that the thyroid can bounce back after a rest. I think it's
worth seeing what happens if you reduce your dose, but
please do it slowly and keep notes of how you feel, to refer
to later and to tell your GP.
