I have endometriosis but it's behaving itself at the moment - scans are clear of cysts and pain manageable. I'm 46 so menopause is not far away although no signs yet. (Had an ovarian cyst removed 5 years ago)
I am used to fatigue but since October my immune system has been on the floor: viral conjunctivitis for three months (visited Moorfields twice); three colds; two 48 hour stomach bugs; two chest infections (antibiotics for the last bought); four cold-sores (I usually get one a year); depression; lethargy; tired all the time (often on rising); feeling cold.
Supplements: Fereglobin during menstruation (liquid iron); vitamin C; Solgar multivits; evening primrose; vitamin D.
The doctor's surgery have told me my results are 'normal'
Blood test results of note:
Ferritin - 13.9 (13-150)
B12 - 483 (197-771)
Vit D - 98 (50-250)
TSH - 0.5 (0.30-4.20)
'Abnormal - no action':
Serum Alkaline Phosphatase - 33 (35-129)
Haematocrit - 0.36 (0.37-0.50)
Im not sure whether to get private Thyroid tests done or not. - Any thought?
My iron is low - can anyone recommend another iron supplement?
Thank you for your time
