Hello, this is my first post here although I have been reading a lot since I joined.
I have just received my blood test results from Medichecks and I was hoping that someone could give me an opinion.
I am advised that my thyroid is normal, but I am vitamin d deficient and low on vitamin b12 and folate. I am not on any medication.
I was convinced that I had a thyroid problem as I have had exhaustion, depression, weight gain (7 stone in the last two years), recurrent infections etc. I was previously on sertraline 200mg but I came off that in January 2017 as I felt it was making things worse. My GP says that all my symptoms are psychosomatic due to my mental health issues. However, I don't really think I have mental health issues anymore and I am sure I haven't imagined my weight gain!
My symptoms started after a really bad bout of flu. I was bedridden for two weeks and I have never been right since. I used to be a fitness instructor but I have had to give that up as any sort of exercise makes me ill now. I am starting to wonder if it is all in my mind. Could vitamin deficiencies really be causing all my problems?
I would appreciate any advice or thoughts on my test results.
