Hi.thanks so much for all your help.
Did lots of reading over weekend ready for appt this morning. Felt really hopeful when set off as it's only second visit to this GP. (Previous one been treating depression for about 3yrs) and he asked for lots bloods on first appt.
Has prescribed ferrous fumarate as already mentioned.
Asked about Low Folate and B12 levels and he said they are fine and within range. Tried tell him they on low side but insisted its fine and no doctor would entertain giving me B12.
Also said that you wouldn't expect a female of five foot nothing to have maximum B12levels (I'm actually 5ft4in but no use arguing).
Also said that in few years iron won't be an issue for me as my periods will stop.
Says it may take couple months for iron to make an improvement to my condition and that I need to address the mental health issues and seek counselling to help!!
Don't think he was at all happy that I've been on Internet to seek help and says all labs have their own ranges to work in so anything online can't compare.
Feel absolutely gutted.
We have medical insurance with BUPA but need a GP referral which doesn't look likely!
Don't know what to do now other than take my pills.
