My blood pressure is ok

Thanks for the details

There are two main things to consider

It can be due to your thyroid disease

Or it can be a neuropathy

B12 deficiency is a possibility as well

I think you should have a thyroid function test and B12 levels to find the cause

It can be due to stomach issues as well

You should take Nexium as well in addition to your current medicine

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I feel noise in my stomach too

Yes that is due to bloated stomach and Nexium will help

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I occasionally belch. Pls what could cause the bloated stomach?

Bloating can be caused by indigestion

This can also be precipitated by gas producing foods

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
What about the needle and pin sensation.

This is due to the nerve irritation caused by thyroid disease

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Dr, do you mean that thyroid diseases can be responsible for the way I feel

Yes it can be the reason

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 16 days ago.

Yes you should repeat a thyroid function test

Do you advise I do an MRI of my neck and head
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Or just the thyroid functions will do for now?

No rather if these persist and the thyroid function test then you should see a neurologist and have a nerve conduction study

I ran a full blood count and the result shows leucocytes count is 3.89

Hi

Sorry for delay

This should not be a problem

Regards

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Should i send the full result for your review

Sure

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
File attached (PM54V4Q)

The white cell count and neutrophils are slightly low

But nothing concerning

You should have a repeat test after a month and if they continue to fall then you may need evaluation

Regards

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
ok. thanks. is there anything i can take to boost the WBC?

No it will recover naturally

Regards
