Hi everyone. I am 26 and I'm just looking for someone to talk to. I think I suffer from sever health anxiety. This is a long one but I'll try and keep it short.
So 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. For 5 we have been through fertility treatment and all failed. Since the end of last year I have had a lot of problems with my health. To name a few I have..Constant migrains, dizziness, lightheaded, irregular/heavy periods, infertility, no energy, lack of sleep, feeling like I'm in a dream, rapidly multiplying premature grey hair, extreme hair loss, cold, weight gain, pale dry skin in patches, stys, sore muscles, lump in throat, brittle nails, eyelashes fall out, blurry eyesight, mood swings, lost libido, weakness, chest pain, palpitations. I know that's a lot lol and I'm sure there's more I can't think of right now. Now the lump in my throat scared me to death. I've been to countless doctors and the ent department. All clear! Now I'm waiting for a. Ultrasound on my thyroid. (Still worry everyday about it) another thing I worry about is the amount of hair I lose. My hair has got noticeably thinner and I lose clumps everyday. I have recently been diagnosed with hashimotos which is an autoimmune disease. I googled and it said if you have one you are more than likely to get another so now I am convinced I may have alopecia. On the brighter side I conceived all by myself (yeeeey) I am 14 weeks pregnant and petrified something is wrong everyday! I was in a&e at the weekend with heart palps, chest pains and tingly arms. Will it ever stop? I don't want to go to the docs and say this incase there is ever anything wrong and she just thinks it's anxiety? Is anybody else like this? Have u over came it? I am always convinced I have cancer or alopecia or a heart problem? ( I still think I may have) I don't know what to do or where to turn to! This baby is the best thing to happen to me and my brain ruins it for me. I seem to be getting worse everyday. Sorry it's long I didn't know where to start or to stop lol x
