On the advice of this forum I finally managed to get my gp to let me have blood tests. I had the whole lot, tsh, t3, t4, b12, iron studies, eSr, rheumatoid, fbc. The gp agreed reluctantly but I think because I am a nurse he decided to humour me. I rang today and a chirpy cheerful receptionist stated 'oh good, everything is normal!!' Er... no love, everything is not normal. I have requested a printout and will collect it tomorrow and will post it for you guys. I too, have started to try exercise again, I play for a netball team which I love but have not played a match for months as feel I am letting the team down. I also used to run regularly. I did a gentle run today and now am collapsed on sofa with leg pain! Also, I have tried to lose weight, had an alcohol free month and no chocolate or crisps and I have put on 2lb! I have a n appt with gp on Monday but I know where this is heading. Him telling me I need Prozac! Does anybody know anything about probiotics? Someone has recommended I try them, the opt Inca range.? She knows someone with m.e. who swears by them.? Will post results tomorrow.
