I have come over from the Pas/b12 def forum
I was diagnosed b12 and folate def with neuropathy in July, negative intrinsic factor for Pernicious anaemia, I had the loading jabs and then the gp stopped them due to high serum b12, its the usual problem with the gps, I have submitted a letter to the practice for reinstatement.
I also have an autoimmune condition Psoriatic Arthritis and low testosterone being treated with Testogel hormone replacement therapy.
I am aware that Thyroid and b12 def can overlap,
Gp has done the basic tsh test, result 1.5.
For many years I have had a red face and chest reported to gp many times, also seen a consultant haemotologist as I read about Polycythemia, he thinks not.
Lately the red face is more prevalent but at night time my body temperature is very hot and I have sleeping problems and a thumping heart.
I have felt unwell for a long time now but I feel as though I am hitting barriers at every turn.
Should I be asking for a full Thyroid panel test ? Or any other advice most welcome.
I am a 61 yr old male in the UK.
