Morning all I hope everyone is well! So what a palava I’m having at the moment to cut a long story short my migraines have been getting progressively worse since October to the point I had to attend A&E on Thursday, I was awoken at 6.30am with the most horrendous pain in the left side of my head and could hardly stand because I was so nauseous and dizzy. I have had this previously on the right side also waking me at 3 am but without the nausea/dizziness and it was suggested it could be occipital neuralgia. This pain is different to my classical migraine with aura symptoms which I’ve been having once/twice per week additionally.
On my last 3 visits to my GP and also the A&E attendance my blood pressure has been extremely high which is very unusual for me as it’s usually on the low side of anything. I’m wondering if anyone knows much about folate deficiency and whether this could be causing my problems?
I was tested privately in October and it came back as deficient but my GP insisted it was normal. I was tested again (NHS) 2 weeks ago and low and behold it has come back as deficient 2.8 so I am now on 5mg of folic acid again, the same thing happened last year and I had to supplement for 4 months then too.
My TSH has gradually gone back down to 1 after being put back on 100mcg from 75mcg, I was thought to be over medicated as my TSH was suppressed at 0.25 so my GP in her wisdom thought it necessary to reduce my dose...to my detriment I feel!
Any advice is much appreciated and very welcome, I’m really fed up of feeling so ill at the moment this has gone on for so long.
