GP will not see me for another 2 weeks - I feel dreadful: super tired, anxious, snappy / irritable, I cannot wake in the morning, and I have lost a lot of hair.
I had a blood test last week - all thyroid tests (well, TSH and fT4, since fT3 was not done) came back ok - at 1.9 and 12, respectively.
Full blood count was "satisfactory" (I assume FBC includes MCV and Hb!?) and liver tests also. Folate is at 10, which is in range.
However, ferritin came back at 11, and B12 at 73.
I don't really understand how both B12 and ferritin can be so low, but Hb and MCV are fine?
Apologies for the ramble - I am just stumped and not sure what to do while I wait for GP to see me (is it safe to at least start on multivitamins and iron supplements?)
