See my previous posts re symptoms - I have just about every symptom you can think of associated with an under active thyroid and/or B12 deficiency.
Have been back and forth to GP and various blood tests etc.
A few weeks ago my TSH level was 3.0 (0.35 to 6.9) and now recent test (taken a few hours later in the day) is 2.3
Labs refusing to do T4 or T3 or to look at antibodies as TSH within range.
My ferratin level is 10
B12 is 215 (189 - 915) so although within range it is at the lower end
Folate is 12.5 (4.0 to 20.0) so this seems ok?
GP has referred me to see a neurologist - not sure why. I did mention that I am having some problems with coordination so I wonder if he is suspecting MS but this could be down to low B12 right?
I'm going to also push for an Endo referral as my glucose is high (it has been a bit up and down over past year and recent fasting result was 6.3)
My cholesterol is high too at 7.3 and although I don't think this is causing me any symptoms, it obviously need tackling.
I'm not sure what my question is really. I'll let the neurologist do his/her 'thing' but am I right to still push for Endo referral?
Is my B12 too low? f so, whats the fastest way to get it back up again?
Anything else still missing here? Things I need to push for? I just want my life back - its so depressing - I am practically housebound and its been this way for almost 2 months.
Lastly, if I have no joy getting tested for Hashimoto's and need to pay for the test privately - can anyone give me a ball park figure on how much this will cost. I have had a look at some of the links on here to the private labs but I find it all a bit confusing my brain refuses to process much at the moment).
For T4 and T3 and antibodies - are we looking at a couple of hundred pounds or more. When I looked, I managed to calculate it at around £700 and I just can't afford that but as I said, I'm finding it hard to focus at the moment
Thank you x
