Hi all, I am new to this and not sure if this post is ok but hope it is.
Basically I went to my doctor a few weeks ago because over the last year or so I have been feeling tired a lot. I don't feel tired as in I want to sleep but I find my body just feels tired, my legs and arms feel achey and sometimes I just want to sit down and do nothing (if that makes sense).
My doctor suggested it could be anaemia or my thyrioid so sent me for blood tests.
I then had a letter to say the lab were not able to process my results properly so I had to go for a second blood test which I did last week. During this test I felt faint and had to lie down in the surgery for a bit to recover.
Anyway, I phoned this morning for my results and was told that my Hba1c needed to be tested again. I had no idea what this was so booked in yet another test for 2 weeks time. Now on checking what Hba1c is, I realise it is the test for diabetes.
I was just wandering what other peoples' experiences were and should I now be concerned? I have tried to phone my doctors back to discuss this and they are engaged (my doctors surgery is a busy one).
Just a bit of history on me: about 4 years ago I lost 3 stone and was a size 10/12, i have recently put about 2 stone of this back on and am now a size 14 and am sat in the overweight bmi range.
