"M.E."

About: Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire

(as the patient),

After 2-3 years debilitating tiredness diagnosed with post viral chronic fatigue syndrome. Had to leave my fabulous job in South Africa and come back to England, leaving Doctor behind who understood and treated me both allopathic and homeopathic. Since coming to UK has taken almost 14 years to find a Doctor who understands. Have just had full thyroid blood test (no Doctor has allowed this since 1999) and I might be hypothyroid which will help alleviate some of my symptoms. Why is this test not available for PWME automatically?
