I am to have bloods this week for tiredness, I have had suspected labyrinthitis so know that has wiped me out a bit but the tiredness started before that, the last 3 days I am bone achingly, lay anywhere for a nap, kind of tired. Inner eyelids are also v.pale so I suspect maybe an iron issue.

Anyway once the results are back what do I need to look out for? I can ring and ask the receptionist specific numbers but what do I need to ask for? What should my levels be?

I had bloods a few years ago and remember someone on here mentioned to ask for so and so results but when I rang the receptionist I had then she just reeled off a list of numbers which meant nothing to me confused so would like to be a bit more prepared this time smile

First thing I was look for is full results and ranges for your thyroid (TSH & T4) and your iron/ferritin levels.

Sorry to hear you’re feeling so awful. I was similar last year and had a malfunctioning thyroid and was anaemic.
