I think you need to have some tests doneThis sounds like something systemic that is causing all of this.Look at the following1)thyroid2)b123)vitamin D4)autoimmune disease.Get tested for the above.I can't really recommend treatment until we find out what is going onlet me know if you have other questions.if done for now, please leave a positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you todaywe only get credit for helping clients after positive feedbackyou can always reach me with "a question for Dr. Phil" in the medicine, cardiology or pharmacy categories if you have any other questionshere is my website if you need to reach me again:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-irondoc/Thanks for using justanswer.com

I have seen nurse she's also said I need tests done it's down to the doctor to sign. He seems think it's my life style 3 kids work and stress. Keep dairy and come back . That's why i have left it for so long and it's affecting me and it's worrying me and especially family telling me I don't look right or well . Plus my relationship. Is there anything I can do if I my doctor doesn't refer the tests this wk.
