I have not been tested for Thyroid problems so hope it is ok to post in this group? I was wondering if someone could take a look at my blood results above. I asked my GP if I could have B12 and magnesium blood tests and have just got my results, he did a few others and says they are all fine. I really don't know much about what the results mean other than I can see they are all within the required levels of 'normal? What I would really like to know is if these levels could be contributing to my health problems and are there any other tests you would suggest.
I have had back, knee, foot pain and some other health issues for about 16 years now, had many lumbar and facet joint pain injections, lumbar decompression and fusion with rods and screws in 2012 which was really successful. It is only since I had a second decompression surgery on my lumbar spine in Sept 2015 that I have not been able to manage my pain levels.
I am trying to treat my pain naturally because meds have had such awful side effects and not done anything for the pain but am in so much pain, am so so tired/exhausted/lacking energy and now looking at different vitamin and minerals that if deficient can cause this or elevate pain levels or irritate nerves in my lumbar and theracic area.
I am officially menopausal, take HRT, high strength Glucosimine and Rose Hip and Turmeric Golden Paste. The worst pain is from the dreadful electric shocks in my lower back after any little activity, this doesn't always start straight away but could be delayed until after I have rested and then try to move. I have a real 'heavy' feeling in my pelvis/sacroilliac/hip area all the time which also locks or ceases up so quickly and can't stand, sit up or lay down for many minutes because of this. My legs jump about in the evenings while sitting with my feet up, my feet vibrate all the time and my back is so sensitive the muscles spasm at any little activity or movement.
Any comments or help would really be appreciated. Sorry it's a long post and thank you for reading. I hope today is a good one for us all 😃😃 x
