    Hi Doretta

    I am sorry to hear that you are having these unpleasant signs and symptoms.

    With regard to your doctor is this a specialist who you are seeing or your GP?

    It sounds as though you are hypo. Do you know what your vitamin D level and phophate levels are?

    It is a good idea to get a full blood profile done especially to check for anaemia and any vitamin B deficiencies.

    Have Rheumatoid factors/inflammmatory markers been checked Doretta?

    Are you in the UK?

    Kind regards

    Hi Doretta

    I too would be interested as to how you got on at the drs. Please PM if you prefer.

    I wondered if you are in the UK as there seems to be major problems here in getting the correct diagnosis and obviously tests and treatment.
