Hello to everyone.
I've come over from the PA site hoping for a bit of advice if you don't mind.
I'll give you a quick background story first though.
Last year I started to feel very unwell with all the typical symptoms of B12 deficiency which also I believe, are similar to thyroid problems.
My gp referred me to a not very pleasant neurologist who told me there was nothing to worry about and go home and exercise! He did however, order blood tests.
B12 179ng/L (120-625)
Vit D 15 nmol/l
HB 116 g/l. (120-160)
MCHC 316 g/l. (320-360)
MCH 26.4 pg (27.0-32.0)
MCV 83.5 fl (82.0-104.0)
Only TSH was tested which came back
3.07 mu/l (0.34-5.6)
Serum folate 6.0 ug/L
I was given high dose Vit D and iron tablets and have been taking Vit B complex, K2 and folic acid.
I was also referred to a haematologist (who refused to see me) and gastroenterologist who I will see 14th March.
I asked the gp for B12 injections which she has given me : loading doses over two weeks then every eight weeks. This didn't seem to be helping so I have now been self injecting for a while, once a week. I just don't seem to be improving at all though and I keep getting awful periods of depression, just wanting to stay in bed for days and having terrible thoughts.
I had another batch of blood test a couple of weeks ago which showed that my iron is now fine but I still feel dreadful. These tests were done at a different lab....
TSH 2.04 mu/l (0.2-4.5)
Serum free T4 11.7 (9.0-24.0)
Do you think it is possible to have horrible symptoms with these results (as they are within range ) or am I barking up the wrong tree again?
Your imput would be much appreciated as my husband is getting very worried about me and is going to speak to the gp this evening.
