I posted some time ago after getting normal TSH levels of .75 after being advised to get my thyroid function tested by other health professionals.
when my results came back they were normal at .75 but my B12 was low and I was diagnosed with pernicious anemia. I've had the five B12 jabs loading dose (notably some reaction to the injection also) I was also referred for a scan as I have a goiter like swelling and a whole host of symptoms that could be thyroid related.
When I arrived at the hospital I was instead given an xray which I've waited 9 weeks for the results, the xray found nothing untoward so I've been told today by my doc (over the phone as I didn't merit a whole in person consultation) that they've booked a scan referal again and if I dont hear anything by two weeks to phone the docs back again!!! Am fuming as I was supposed to be scanned first time.
I then tried telling my doc that despite the B12 injections which had helped lift my brain fog (woooo can think straight again!) that I was still very very tired and lethargic, sex drive gone still, cant shift any weight despite trying hard and I was now also experiencing muscle weakness and fatigue and I was experiencing joint pain - which when I think about it in my hands I've been getting for about 8 months. I questioned what they actually tested the first time (which was back in april now) and asked shouldn't perhaps I be tested for antibodies - I was told quite rudely that my TSH levels are normal so there is no point in testing for anything else. I also have back problems at the moment and was told that the pernicious anemia was causing it - funny how since getting the B12 its just as bad as ever.
Sorry I am fuming at the moment and just don't know what to do - I suppose it will be have to wait to get the actual scan and take it from there. Am just crying with frustration as I feel so ill yet it would appear that the NHS are more concerned about cost than actually helping people. didn't even get an apology for the wait for the results for the wrong type of test!!!!!
