Hi all, just back from a rather good GP consultation, quite pleasantly surprised. She listened to everything I said and has agreed to refer me back to see an endocrinologist. So I need to know how to contact Louise Warville for the list of recommended endocrinologists. I live in Essex, but can travel to London if necessary. So if anyone wants to private message me a name of a good one in this area that would be fine. Also, she has agreed to me having a trial of six weekly B12 injections! I can't quite believe it, I even took my husband with me to help fight my corner. So I've booked my next injection for two weeks time. Yippee! I've been on twelve weekly jabs for about fifteen months, and always feel as though the last four weeks , before my jab, I am running down. (Like a battery).
My reasons for going back to see an endocrinologist are because since the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I have been looking more closely at all my symptoms. I feel it's worth going back to the beginning, ( the thyroid), to get more detailed and up to date checks, and hopefully more thorough blood tests.
I was never told if it was autoimmune thyroid disease when it was diagnosed, but believe it probably was. The B12 blood tests did show some intrinsic factor, does this confirm Pernicious Anaemia?
I think probably all these illnesses are autoimmune, I wonder if my body has any other nasty little surprises brewing?
Anyway, thank you all for being there and for your support. MariLiz x
