Thanks for the reply, I have just had an appt. with my 'proper' doctor(who is only there part-time) had to insist on seeing him as they like to pass you over to whoever is available. Told him about these symptoms and that I was mainly concerned with the pins/needles in leg etc. Has sent me for X-Ray this afternoon, doing bloods for the following:
Full blood count
Urea and electrolytes
Liver function tests
and a bone profile test
My Dad had rheumatoid arthritis in base of spine (at c6, I think )and had to have operation to enlarge the space where the spinal cord sits because of numbness in foot and leg, so I suppose he's looking at the possibility of it being a spinal problem as opposed to b12. Also given Amitriptyline 10mcgs 1 at night to ease the nerve in the leg?
I'll have to look up what ESR stands for and is the bone density to see if there is evidence of osteoporosis? I hope not.
Anyway, To-morrow they'll have an arms worth of the red stuff to play with and we'll get a little further along the yellow brick road! Should I fast for 24hours for these and not take the Levothyroxine or Amitriptyline?
