Hi Hampster. Thanks for the advice.
I mailed Axis yesterday and they said the test provider should say how long to stop supplementing before the test which is fair enough. Blue Horizon say two weeks, St Thomas' say one month, my GP doesn't know. Like I said to Shaws I think I am going to order a test from Blue Horizon today and test early myself an by the time it arrives it will be two weeks since I stopped.
You are right and have been right all along about the B12 deficiency. I think I must of have had most of these symptoms since birth. I have always been told I was anaemic and to drink Guinness at school! I kid you not. I have treated for heart murmur since birth. When I finally got diagnosed with Graves, I thought that it was part and parcel. It wasn't until I had my thyroid removed that I realised something else was still wrong. Thinking it was my thyroid or lack of it, is when I jointed here an both you and Shaws mentioned B vitamins. Lifesavers. I am now noting my symptoms. I have TED pretty bad, been waiting for my eyes become non active. Recently they seemed to have settled a bit but his morning they very red and very swollen. So in the house of cards of how medicines and vitamins work I wonder if there is any relationship between taking B vitamins? Can't thank you enough and might have to pick your brains again on the B12gate,
