After all the blood tests my GP has decided to prescribe vitamin D as my count was low. No kidding Sherlock! I was deficient in vitamin D a year ago and my last GP decided I didn't need them. Another cost saving exercise? However she also decided I needed to have more blood tests (more vampires here than I initially thought) to ascertain why my folate count is low she's now decided that both f these things are causing the bulk of my issues I reckon. Tiredness; muscle aches to the point I want to scream; inability to walk more than 50 steps before I need to rest; 6 stone weight gain in three years; hair falling out; inability to kneel due to chronic pain in my knees if I attempt it; I can only wear uggs or emus cos my feet hurt so bad when I walk; chronic sleeplessness. Yeah I take 75mcg of levothyroxine hasn't changed in three year cos I am on the normal spectrum and I feel worse by the week. I'm frightened I will never get better, lose weight, rediscover my libido which disappeared at the same time the thyroid decided to stop working properly, I just want to live again rather than just exist! I'm frustrated, weepy, angry, in pain, fed up and very fat! I am complaining I am being inquisitive I am read arching this chronic condition so I can try and talk to my GP with some level of accuracy and confidence but what if she won't help me? What f he knows better? Does she? Please help me. Is she on the right track? Any comments will help. Thanks everyone. Jut knowing some of you know how I feel and can empathise somehow helps ......
