Nichelle heard back from the most recent endocrinologist’s office. Here are his notes:
- No further assessment
- Fasting plasma glucose at some point in the future, not running any more tests.
- Maybe another fasting glucose—talk to the PCP about that
- Can find nothing from an endocrine standpoint
However, the office is checking on a referral to an endocrinologist in Boston.
This is really, really frustrating. Hypothyroidism on top of fibromyalgia explains nearly all of Nichelle’s symptoms. Every doctor except the endocrinologists Nichelle has seen seems to think this exhibits as a clearly endocrinological problem.
I’m going for a walk.
Nichelle has been referred to a specialist in Boston. The endocrinologist did agree to the referral, and will be following up on the results. This is some progress.
