I'm trying to understand my symptoms and having read a few posts on here I think some recent blood tests may help shed some light if anyone is able to help?
I believe my B12, folate and possibly MCHC aren't looking too good? (See results below). Any thoughts?
I'm awaiting a more thorough thyroid screening test back (fortunate my GP is now testing for antibodies and T3 has promised a referral even if privately after results come back ).
My symptoms seem never ending but a few are: extreme tiredness, weight gain, dizziness/'zoning out', sometimes sleeplessness, headaches, shaky, cold hands/feet, sometimes shaky (especially if stressed), periods becoming more irregular than usual, muscle aches (spending too much on physio atm!) pins and needles, swollen tongue/dry throat.... on and on... seems different set of stuff all the time but always tired. Good days/bad days, you all know the drill...
Hope to have this sorted before I have to cut hours at work.
I take nutri supplements currently including adrenal extra, thyroid, thyro complex, co q 10 and vit c every day. I don't feel this is working anymore....
TSH 4.17 (0.35-5.0)
T4 14.5 (9.0 - 22.0)
MCHC 359 (300-360)
MCV 87 (84-98)
MCH 31.3 (27.5-32)
B12 308 (200-910)
Ferritin 82 (10-200)
Follate 4.9 (3-20)
Didn't have vit d done although GP did suggest I possibly could be deficient or should take a supplement although I felt I was being fobbed off. That said he has been more responsive than any other doc so I'm not complaining...
Sorry for long email. Trying to understand before next appt (next week). I expect high antibodies!!
Any comments or thoughts would be very much appreciated... want to enjoy what's left of my 20s!!!
