Today has seemed a long day yet we were busy this morning. We had to go into town this morning as Rick wanted to get some information from the job centre. We were supposed to have a nurse’s appointment as well but that got cancelled. We both needed to get new prescriptions so asked about that while on the phone and made a doctor’s appointment for me. I was quite shocked to be given one for 11 am this morning but didn’t refuse it despite the bad weather. I am getting really fed up of the snow now. It was nice to see but now it’s treacherous to walk on due to the thick ice.
I told the doctor how bad my hip is getting with the constant pain and occasional pins and needles. My notes still haven’t come through so I still don’t know what the x-rays show. The doctor asked me a load of questions and took blood. He has concluded that I have a B12 deficiency as he has researched the subject and my symptons tally with that. So I have had an injection and am going to see him on Friday morning for the blood test result. At least I have started changing my diet so that should help as well. It is actually a relief to know what the problem is as I was feeling so run down but didn’t know why.
