Can you help, for the past few months I have been experiencing pain in shoulders and arms then in my legs. Its a kind of numb, heavy persistent and gnawing pain. The pain is like that sore body flu pain.
I also get a recurant sore throat and a burning tongue. I'm so tired and lifeless and sore feeling. I'm like a zombie!
Driving is an effort, if I even walk round the shop the pain gets awful, like I've done a massive work out. I've been stuck in this cycle since July/August.
I have had a full blood count done by the doctor in October who told me liver/kidney function were all normal, blood count and thyroid normal but my ferrous levels were low.
Would a FBC show up vitamin B12 deficiency?
I was also prescribed Omeprazole because I get heartburn, several types of pain killers, which don't touch the sides and venlafaxine twice a day (not sure why!).
Please can you help?
My doctor isn't taking me seriously and doesn't take kindly to being asked to take blood.
I really need some help.
Thank you in advance.
