Hi I'm new here and don't normally join or post to websites but so fed up of being strung along by doctors who constantly tell me everything's normal when I feel the opposite so any advice welcomed. I went to Dr last December after trying to cope on my own for about a year feeling far more tired and run down than I should I'm 31 not suffering anxiety or depression have a lovely life that is busy but not more than anyone else I know and yet I have waves of exhaustion, palpitations, feel like I need to draw big breaths to get enough air, losing hair, and getting sensations in my wrists hands and ankles like carpel tunnel also put on about a stone in weight over a year whilst maintaining same diet and (lack of) exercise.
Had fbc pretty much asked if I was depressed otherwise man up and get on with it. Felt really upset and like there was no point going back so left it until March when I just knew I couldn't live like this forever and saw another Dr turns out my b12 was low on prev blood test - repeated borderline low so told take supplements and retest. Borderline low pushed a bit for some treatment and prescribed pyridoxine retested borderline low - by this point I'm getting really fed up of being fobbed off with tests and waiting it's not getting better had a good moan and Dr is consulting blood specialist in the meantime Ive had copies of my last 2 blood tests printed and b12 in august was 171 in September after pyridoxine it's only gone up to 185 and both say in light of clinical state film examination and intrinsic factor abs!!!! Why has this been ignored - after about 5 minutes on Google I knew my b12 was not borderline anything it's below range as the lab has clearly stated at least twice ahh! Feel helpless and no idea what to do next sorry for such a long post and thanks to anyone who can be bothered to read and reply
