I’m wondering if anyone can help, Im new here but I’ve been struggling with intermittent symptoms beginning with the flu followed by pin and needles in my leg whist in the gym in January.
Since then I’ve experienced intermittent symptoms, (a week on, 3 days off for example) the list of which is below.
My GP ordered full bloods, which were
B12 – 183 ng/L (220-770)
Folate – 6.9 ug/L (3.9 – 27)
Serum TSH – 1.6 mu/L (0.3 – 6.00)
Serum Free T4 – 13.7 (10 – 22)
Ferritin – 63 ug/L (13.00 – 150)
Hemo Estimation 145 g/L (118.148)
RBC – 4.62 10*912/L (3.88 – 4.99)
MCV – 90 fL 980 – 100)
MCH – 31.4pg (28 – 33)
Intrinsic Factor Antibody – Negative
Anti Gastric Parental Cell – Negative
My GP has me on every other day injections of B12 (currently on no.12) but Ive seen only intermittent improvements which only seem to last a day or so then I’m back to square one.
Two neurologists have concluded that their examinations are normal and expect the MRI scans I’m awaiting will also be normal.
I’m going out of my mind. I feel like a zombie version of myself.
A colleague suggested it could have something to do with my thyroid (which my nan and aunt also have) and I wondered if anyone has had a similar experience or could better help me understand my bloods, it would be most appreciated.
(I also take Magnesium 300ug, Folic Acid 400ug and Vit D 1000ug daily since around two weeks ago and have been celiac for 3 years)
Thank You, Leanne
