can I ask to be referred back to a hospital consultant? I've lost confidence in my doctor to the degree were I don't want to go for my scheduled blood tests!!! I asked a question a while ago about understanding my blood tests and it was recommended that I talk to my doctor about checking my vitamin B12, folates, iron/ferritin and vitamin D. The doctor basically dismissed this even though I explained how I was feeling. I should have gone for repeat blood tests last week but haven't gone yet. I'm feeling like poo, aching all over, putting on weight, feeling tired, crappy memory, sometimes weepy(although that might be because my little girl is starting school) didn't have a period at all last year but they came back and where very heavy but have now stopped again since May. I've started to get heart burn nearly every night and yesterday I went for a walk with my family and besides aching from head to toe my fingers where swollen!!! everything seems to be such a huge effort at the moment.
