I feel very cheeky even asking this question but in my circumstances, what would you do?
Have been feeling ill for 4 months now - can't believe it's been that long.
Multiple symptoms indicative of hypo and low B12
Blood tests show a TSH of 3, Ferratin of 10, B12 of 215.
GP is convinced I have ME - on my very first GP appointment he tried to send me packing with antidepressants and was reluctant to order any blood tests at all.
Neurologist was also very dismissive and thinks it's all psychological.
Labs won't test for T3 or T4 or antibodies, nor will GP test for IF, Vit D or Coeliacs (he thinks I have had enough tests already!)
I do have an endo appointment coming up but I'm not holding my breath as this particular endo seems to have a terrible reputation.
I'm willing to give him a try though.
In my drawer in the kitchen however, I have a blood test request form from another GP at the surgery (who has since left). He wrote it out for me so that I could get my Ferratin levels rechecked at some point.
He has ticked the box for the Ferratin test but there are also other boxes that could be ticked plus blank spaces.
In my shoes, in total desperation, what would you do?
I know it's wrong but I'm so tempted to add some other 'suggestions' to the form.
I can't believe I'm even considering it
