So, every time I see a post regarding ET in my lovely FB group, I can relate to the symptoms, especially tiredness and poor immune system. Yet when I see my specialist she basically says these aren’t symptoms of ET. Does anyone know whether they are? If so, why does my specialist seem to think they aren’t?
Hi and welcome to the online community and I'm sorry to see you here because you have some medical concerns.
Normally I would be pointing you towards out specialist nurses in out Ask a nurse page but in view of symptoms you described and the response you've had from your consultant and as the members of the forum are not medically trained I am afraid we wouldn't be able to hazard a guess at what your problem could be.
My only suggestion to you would be to seek the advice of your GP and describe all the symptoms you are having and hopefully he will arrange a full set of blood tests to eliminate likely causes of your tiredness and poor immune system.
To put your mind at rest I would suggest that you make the appointment as soon as possible so you can stop worrying.
