This is a bit long winded, but here goes. About 6 months back I had random bloods (find&treat). This found a low B12. I had to repeat in 3months they was worse. Feeling ridiculously tired by now was assured b12 injections would sort me out. Continued to struggle on aches and pains were comin now feel awful, injections having no effect. Tell nurse at each visit how I'm feeling. Says she's sure things will calm down soon. See her twice for test results and 6 times for injections. By my 1st injection 2months back I had the rash, still tired still acing like mad, I think it's all down to low B12 coz that's what I'm told. Within just a couple of weeks can't cope off work sick as I feel that bad decide to see Dr explain everything he has no idea but refers me to Dermatology for rash. They do biopsies and diagnose Lupus. Whilst waiting for Dermatology saw Dr 5 times everytime moaning about all my symptoms. Went yesterday rash barely visable now thanks to Dermatology apart from on my back. Dr thrilled I can go back to work now look so much better. Mention tiredness n aches he replies you've never been in for this only the rash. To say I felt like slapping him is an understatement. Still didnt get anything for pain aswell or tiredness either was told to wait for biopsy results then they'll know the best thing to give me. So il go back to work on Monday like a zombie and feeling like I've done 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. It's a joke can't even pick my small son up I'm in that much pain. Take paracetamol like they're toffees which dr is aware of and didnt even address so I guess this is fine even though I know it's not. Just beginning to winded do Drs even know what Lupus is
