Hi everyone. I know that some of you have suggested in the past that I have my thyroid checked. Over the past few months my condition has been stable, the riveroxaban has made a large difference from injecting fragmin and I have been feeling better. I always suffer from pins and needles and memory loss. this was attributed to a severe lack of B12 again( this has been an issues in years previous) I started injections of B12 every other day for 2 weeks and every 6 weeks a booster. The memory loss seems better, but no change in the pins and needles
I have had a neck MRI and a brain MRI. The neck MRI came back with a slight bulging disc , but not enough to cause any nerve damage at this stage. The brain MRI results have not been sent yet .
I am still very tired all the time, have started gaining weight, not a large amount but 2lb every month even though I train 4 times a week. I also have shaking hands at periods in the day.
There is a history of thyroid, and thyroid eye disease in my family ( grandmother and mother) I have been tested through the gp for thyroid but they just stay its a normal range. I have no understanding of the ranges with thyroid, can someone explain more? would it also be worth having private blood test? any thoughts would be great
I feel at the moment that i am just going around in circles. 3 years on and I seem to be getting more ailments, but no reason as to why?
When asking the gp why my B12 levels are so depleted I was told " It just happens to some people" I am the sort of person that likes to know why? My diet is good and I have been checked for pernicious anaemia so again i am asking on this forum as everyone seems so much more forthcoming with information
