I finally had my bloods taken last Friday and my GP surgery rang me yesterday afternoon, well the receptionist rang . I have been prescribed folic acid and ferrous sulfate tabs , considering my GP told me " oh your bloods were fine when you had your gallbladder removed in August ". I insisted they be done so finally she listened and did i prove her wrong !!! I read that anti seizure drugs can cause low folate levels , well i have taken Gabapentin for over 4 years now so why did no one ever tell me ! I am relieved i have the results finally and fingers crossed once my levels are higher that my restless legs will improve but i still have a long way to go as i will have to wean off my mirapex first but ive decided to wait till Christmas and New Year are over . If i hadnt come on this forum i would never of known everything i do and insisted my bloods be taken . I dont know what i would do without you all and thank you all for your continued support
