Just wondering if anyone has any experience of Dr Skinner? He specialises in subclinical Hypothyroidsim and has seen a lot of M.E patients. My latest lab results show my TSH has gone up again, but still within normal range (2.39) and my Free T4 has dropped to my lowest ever level at 12.6 (reference range 12 - 22) over the years my T4 has fluctuated between 15 and 17, apart from all the usual classic M.E symptoms i now have hair falling out, more noticeably than normal plus even more weight gain - and that was on a paleo very low carb diet. I did a trial of Thyroxine a couple of years back, prescribed by Dr Myhill, i had a strange experience with it, and thought someone who specialises in that area specifically might help. The testimonials from patients i have read speak very highly of him. I am aware that he has been under various orders and restricitons by the GMC for some years, although i understand it is manily compalints from other GP's, not from his patients. I had high hopes to travel to Brussels this year to see Professor De Merleir, but i simply don't have the funds, or energy to contemplate it this year. I can't sit back and do nothing, so in light of my thyroid results thought it might be worth a shot. All the best, Justy.
