After giving up on my Edo eventually have went back to my doctor as I have been feeling rubbish for what feels like years now. My blood tests has come back indicating that my tsh is at a great level but my folate level is through the floor. My doc has given me a months dose of folic acid and seems to think this will sort me out. I have to see her in 3 months and she has said if its still a problem then I might just need extra folic acid for the rest of my life.
I've a bit of. Problem with that..... surely she should be trying to find out what is causing the folate deficiency???? This is the second time that this has shown up low on my blood tests alongside my MCV being marked as over range in every full blood test I have had!!!
Why do doctors always seem to want to just treat the symptoms and not find out the cause.
I am sick and tired (literally!!) Of feeling like this. I have huge dark circles under my eyes as I always have a nightmare sleeping, my fingers are constantly numb and swollen, my body aches, I always get hot feet and irritated legs about 10.30 pm EVERY night, I constantly feel tired, and according to her this is all because I need a months dose of folic acid!!
Anyway rant over...
