Hi I have posted on here a few times in the past weeks as I have been feeling so rubbish - fatigue/depression/achey joints/fuzzy head to name a few. Three doctors had insisted I take antidepressants but thanks to people on here, I have resisted as I know this isn't just depression (I was feeling at my wits end with being so exhausted and it makes you feel really depressed when you can't get the energy to get out of bed!) Anyway, I am still having to wait until August for the next TSH test (this was 4.2 back in April), but have finally got other results. Again, thanks to the good advice I felt more able to push for having these tested.
Vit B12 541
FSH normal (so presumably not menopausal)
I'm not sure what to make of these, but have been told these are normal.
I took it upon myself after this blood test to take Vitabiotics Ferraglobin to see if it helped (desperate to try anything!) Now I'm not sure what this means, but with 7 days taking, I feel great - today for the first time in months, I can think straight again. I feel like I have my brain power back, and although I am tired, I feel OK, not totally stuck to the sofa. I've been laughing at things too. My friend commented today that I seem happier than recently - I hadn't realised, but I haven't 'enjoyed' things for a long time. Even my little boy has said that it was nice today as he felt mummy was less shouty (major guilt there then!)
I'm a bit puzzled as why could just some vitamins make me feel so much better and does this mean it's not an underactive thyroid?!? All I do know is that I am SO glad not to have taken the antidepressants, as I don't think their side-effects would have helped me at all....
