Hi, For 6mths i have been informing my gp of constant aching allover especially my arms & legs,plus getting very hot flashes in my hands & feet. Im still getting all this to the point i had to leave my workplace very early on two occassions last week because of the severe aching. I believe it to be circulation but everytime i mention it its dismissed. The ache then goes to my chest area & can last a while,ive put this down to maybe my anxiety playing a part after the severe aching. Due to this i made an app. to see my gp, on this occassion it was a different gp he again checked my pulse in legs & said circulation is ok, but i have my pain when sitting & actually walking makes it feel better so i dont think he is checking at the right situation??? or doesnt it matter? Also i had a blood test a while ago for vit D which was ok, but this gp mentioned that my iron level was raised... even though previous gp's never told me this just said vit D ok. He asked me if i get aches & pains in general to which i practically yelled yes atlast i felt someone listening, he aslo asked if my parents have raised iron levels to which i replied no. He was honest,& said he was stumped as to why my iron is raised & said he would need to do some homework on this & call me back at a later date. Being new to all this, can AF raise iron levels, can it give you hot flashes? I feel my circulation isnt correct but yet told it is, if my legs didnt ache like they do, i know id feel so much better in myself so they are playing such a big part in my lack of quality of day to day issues. Im just getting so frustrated with this as the aches seem to be taking over & dominating each day.
