After a very troublesome year so far, my appointment at RVI Newcastle came through where I seen a Doctor who took a full medical history. An XRay on my left knee as I have been off work since January with swelling, pain and unable to bare weight up on it. My past post 7 months prior were for anxiety depression, fatigue and fibromyalgia pain. This has all been confirmed now and my knee X Ray came back showing pronounced reduction in joint space. Yet my GP never sent me for an X-ray in January, instead I had to wait for this appointment in March and had it done here, it's rediculous but my question is I don't know what the bloods he ran mean or what he was looking for. I suffer concentration and brain fog and tbh I just feel so confused and no nearer to a solution. He ran Haemoglobin, platelet count,MCV and differential white count, B12-265, Folate-*8.7,Vit D-*57and Ferritin-*57, creating kinase-108, calcium-2.57adjusted calcium2.55, alkaline phosphate-94. Auto antibody screen including( ENA, DNA, CCP antibodies). What do they mean? Please, Hope everyone is managing there own struggles and are trying to enjoy some of the lovely sun shine out there today.
I'm still off work on the sick so I'm getting in the garden, although yesterday I found it particularly too hot for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated 😘
