Morning, I wonder if anyone might be able to give some advice please, I now have shingles again, this more than a dozen times over the last 2 years in exactly the same place, I even have Acilovir on repeat prescription for it but I've had enough now and want my GP to refer me to someone who might investigate it, who would that person be, what specialist and can I demand that it is investigated?
I have other auto-immune issues (hyperthyroid, have had thyroid eye disease, low Vit D, am IgA deficient, Coeliac (diagnosed Feb 16) and when tested my ESR is usually raised) oh and I've had to take 400mg of iron for the past 12/15 years but last November my iron levels were too high and I was told to stop taking them (having previously been told I'd have to take it for life as my body will not store iron) and a blood test Weds confirmed the level is still too high but the GP put "no further action" - tbh, they just don't seem to want to do anything
My main symptoms, extreme fatigue/lethergy have been going on for over 5 years now, I've been signed off sick since Sept. 2014, I want to get better but it just goes on an on. I got referred to an ME specialist last July (she was brilliant) and one of her suggestions was to see an Immunologist but it's not happening.
