Hi, in July of this year, I went to Gp to complain of extreme tiredness, agitation and weight gain, my weight in a little over 12 months had balloned from 11 Stone with a 32" waist, to 13 stone with 36" waist and I have grown some healthy manboobs in the process too!
I was convinced that my bloodtest would confirm a thyroid issue however it was apparently normal and I was eventually diagnosed with Pernicious aneamia after IFA test and am undergoing relevant treatment.
My thyroid test was a puzzle to me as it was worded differently than those I had seen before, the test was (TFGPS) THYROID ( NOT T4) ?
My result was "normal" : serum TSH level 1.1 mU/l with a reference range of 0.35-5.50mU/l.
Is there any need for me to investigate further? I'm currently due to see a haematologist as I told doc that b12 loading dose treatment had no effect, I'm actually getting pins and needles in my hands and feet and am gunning for more intensive b12 treatment.
