spoke to GP Thursday, told her all the latest symptoms since they stopped my iron meds that I've previously had to take for some 18 years (head hurts, fat tongue, frequently taking deep breaths, blurred vision sometimes) and that I'm *really* struggling with the fatigue and beginning to get a little worried, she can't do anything until she hears back from Gastro, supposed to have written early April, I say supposed because I rang Gastro yesterday and they've not had a letter!) .
Asked if I could have another blood test to see if it's gone even lower (went below range April 2016) last one was in December (8.2 range 11.5 - 30 , she said "there's no point, it's just number, we know it's low,", asked if there was a number it could drop to where it becomes serious, she said "I don't know"!!
asked (again) for a referral to Haematology, she said, "we have to wait until we hear from Gastro" so no further forward, no progress, feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall.
I have come to the conclusion that this is anemia of chronic disease but who am I to say!
