Hello, well I saw my 'proper' GP last night and we went through the results and had a good talk about my symptoms. She compared the recent results with those done in 2014 and there was little difference. They were Serum TSH level 1.7miu/L (range U 0.35-4.94), Serum freeT4 level 12.3pmol/L (range U9 -19), and Thyroid peroxidase anti bod lev (Readcode ~43Gd) Negative. Coeliac antibody test - negative (I have a coeliac daughter)
It did however show raised white blood cell count and enlarged red blood cells. The GP suspects Pernicious Anaemia or Fibromyalgia as more likely diagnosis. I'm having a further blood test for B12 and Folate levels which would confirm the former along with my presenting symptoms. Failing that she will refer me to a rheumatologist.
I've been given Duloxetine 30mg to help with the neuropathic leg and feet aches and boost my low mood. Took the first last night and woke up feeling woozy and nauseous so probably won't bother with any more. I really can't cope with feeling any worse, but I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about a proper diagnosis. Don't know what you wonderful helpful people think? Thank you for all your helpful support so far and I hope everyone is having one of their good days today xx
