I went to my doctors again yesterday, first time in several months as I got fed up with blood tests just coming back normal and from the moment I walked in I knew she had come to the conclusion I had CFS. Don't get me wrong she was really supportive about it and offered to refer me to Southend which apparently has a really good CFS service. The thing is that while my symptoms do match those of CFS I'm not convinced that's what it actually is. Once or twice a year for the last couple of years my ferritin levels have gone low and I've had to have iron supplements.
I think what has frustrated me most is the fact that when I mentioned it she just said ferritin was fine last time so I don't need it checked again. (Last time was Oct 2016 and was checked after finishing a course of iron tablets so I should hope it had been fine then!)
I also mentioned concerns about my thyroid and got the response I was expecting there too. They're 'fine' and because my TPO came back negative I'm unlikely to develop problems, last few tests TSH was 4.67 and 3.something (I put the results up safe somewhere and can't remember where lol) old tests show it used to be closer to 1. She did say they could test again in December 'If I wanted' which just felt like she was trying to move me on from the point.
Maybe I'm in denial but I just feel like CFS isn't what's going on for me.
