The day has finally arrived! I have waited a month for this doctor's appointment and I just got back from it. Of course my doctor had a med student working with her so I had to repeat my symptoms and everything more or less twice haha, but anything to help the future generation. :-)
I basically took a bunch of tests for various things connected to thyroid issues, reumatism, some kind of gene that is common among people with ulcerative colitis and so on. I also got a referral to a psychiatrist, so in a about a week I have a phone meeting and I guess the I will begin a bipolar "investigation" from there.
At this point it's impossible to say what the tests will show, of course. But I'm glad they took me super seriously and I got everything I wanted at today's appointment. I wanted tests for my thyroid and a referral to psych due to my bipolar suspicion. Check and check. Now we just wait and see.
I'm still in a dip health-wise but perhaps there is light at the end of the tunnel.
