I have been feeling dreadful this past 3 weeks heavy period for over 2 weeks then 3 days spotting. I have had a dull ache on right side, exausted, brain fog , freezing, frequent urination. I also have 2 tiny fibroids which I think could be contributing to my problems. I am 46 so could also be perimenapausal. So told my doc how I was feeling he checked my urine but was clear. I then proceeded to to tell him that I thought my B12 was low, last test was 250 range (191-660). I mentioned I had been reading on this site about ferretin and my tsh and t4 need to be optimal for relief of symptoms. Well he swung round on his chair and said "you need to stop this analyzing right now" to say I was shocked is an understatement... he said "I think your depressed and would benefit from antisdepressants". I was totally shocked. He said I am making myself ill by reading all this stuff about ranges and so on. I just got up and walked out and told him I am not depressed just sick!!!. I feel so let down and my lovely hubby is now writing a letter to the practice manager, he is furious!!!. I just want to know why I am feeling so bad with periods and also if I am optimally medicated. I think its time to find an understanding doc.
Sorry for the rant. Xx
