Hi Pineapple and :welcome: to the forum, I have split your post off and created a new topic for you as your post might get lost being attached to something unrelated.

I would say dont stress, cant you self cert for so many days before needing a sick note :?: :?: :?: not sure of the rules as its been a while since I last worked.

Anyway tell work you are waiting for some blood results and should know when you might be back shortly, as for your bloods being back quickly again dont stress if it was anything to worry about your doc would have contacted you. I have had results back within a couple of days while others can take weeks (blood tests I mean and they are all for the same thing)

Hi long you been off? You definitely can self certify for the first wk, but your work place really shouldn't be contacting you whilst your off .....All adds to the stress!! X best wishes
