I thought I'd post my experience so that you could compare it as we are all going for blood test at the moment and discussing levels of this and that.
I had many abnormal's show up this time including T4, haemoglobin was fine but my iron stores are low (Ferretin) so I'm back on iron tablets without being anaemic again I urge you to get this checked as you may have low iron stores and not know about it especially if your results show normal haemoglobin score. Thanks to fibro fog I now cannot remember what the other abnormals were but the doctor explained that they were borderline scores so we'd check them again in 3 months. This is knew to me as I've never had blood results come back like that!!
At least now I know he's checking my thyroid function as well as my iron and calcium stores in more depth than before He explained everything to me very clearly and showed me the scores on the computer, very good GP I think
Now, pain levels, what's your threshold? Mine is terrible I take S/R tramadol 100mg twice daily, tramadol 50mg 1-2 four times a day alongside paracetamol (i'm taking maximum at the moment) The doc has just upped my Pregabalin to 200mg three times a day. Whoopie My doc somehow is under the impression that injection don't work so I explained that they can work but he shan't review it until my physio and hydro have started.
Nevermind lets hope I don't put any more weight on due to the Pregabalin and the fact I cannot exercise
Righty ho! that's my whiney whinge over for the day as I need to remain positive that some better pain medication will appear one day soon
Many healing rosemary fluffies to you all xxxzebxxx
