I've got very odd symptoms at the moment. Very tingly, weakmess etc. sensory issues often numb hands and feet. Whole body rls.
My b12 is 600.
My ferritin a few weeks ago was 57.
I'm coming off sertraline and thuroxine is 150; Tsh was over suppressed a while ago on 175.
My gp has suggested a referral to rheum and to supplement with over the counter iron eg feroglobin. I've ordered some spatone.
What concerns me is my rbc was slightly out of range, see below, at the time of the ferritin test.
After looking at symptoms of polycythemia I do appear to have some, especially itchy after bath and full feeling in abdomen.
I've booked a second gp appt today for a second opinion; I wondered if I should get another blood test done before supplementing?
Or, just stay super hydrated and try and do some exersise?
