I went to my gp recently as ive been struggling with fatigue, weight gain despite exercise, brain fog, sheer exhaustion, tingly fingers sometimes and anxiety. Every day I feel awful and I can no longer workout because if I do I feel terrible fatigue and pain for 3 days afterwards. My gp wanted to check my thyroid and b12 as he suspected both weren't right.
I've had low ferritin for 10 years, I struggle taking iron tablets so intake spatone supplement which is gentler. I put my tiredness down to the low ferritin but it's been lower in the past and I've not felt this tired.
I rang for my results and was told all normal by the receptionist. I didn't trust this so asked for a copy of my results. The are as follows
Serum TSH 5.33 mu/L ( 0.35-5.50)
Serum Free T4 - 11.0 pmol/L (7.0-17.0)
B12 - 212 ng/L ( 150-900)
Intermediate level. Consider treatment if evidence of deficiency.
Serum Folate 23.20
Serum Folate 15 ug/L (15-300)
I am speaking to my gp next week to discuss this I worry challenging him as he's marked all as normal but are they? I am in the UK.
