Hi, i posted on here recently as I was wondering whether b12 deficiency could be responsible for any of my symptoms. I was diagnosed with ME 15 years ago and have been struggling for over 3 years to get past the last relapse. It was suggested I could put my recent blood test results on here and would appreciate any suggestions or opinions please! I spent an hour typing it all in last night, then somehow forgot to press submit at the end, doh!
B12 456 (130-1100)
Folate 6.1 (2.7-15)
Thyroid function TSH 1.88 (0.35-3.50) this has raised from 0.95 on last testing
Free T4 15 (8-21)
I had my thyroid tested when this last relapse started due to a feeling of going to fast inside, hard to explain and an sever over alertness to noise, small stresses, fast heart rate, anxiety,etc, Was told it was possibly due to the ear condition I'd had for a few months? Also had a saliva adrenal test at the time and that reported raised cortisol in the night but a bit lower than should be at the other three times.
Ferritin 12(23-300) have been put on ferrous Fumarate 3 times a day for this.
Plasma glucose level 6.3. (3.5-7.8) this was after 12 hours fasting...
Total white cell 5.9 (4-10)
Rbc 4.22 (3.8-4.8)
Haemoglobinestimate 133 (120-150)
Haematocrit 0.393 (0.360-0.460)
Mcv 93 (83-101)
Platelet 341 (150-410)
Neutrophil 3.72 (2-7)
Lymphocyte 1.17 (1-3)
Monocytes 0.51 (0.2-1)
Eosinophil 0.44 (0.2-1)
Basophils 0.06 (0-0.10)
Nucleated rbc 0 10 star 9/L
Am thinking perhaps the low ferritin has been responsible for some symptoms such as breathlessness, dizziness, pretty bad brain fog, nausea and picking up more infections again?
Anyway, if you are still with me after all that many, many thanks! Jo5454
