hi this is very interesting, i am very ill at the moment, i have been in hospital for 5 weeks my symptoms are: palpitations, sweating, tremors, muscle spams which look like seizures, memory loss, confusion, irritiability, nervousness, severe insomina, itchy red skin rashes, pains in chest, hair loss on leg, hair growth, modd swings, dizziness, loss of balance, weight loss even though good appetite, weight loss, cant walk need a walking frame / i am only 31! went from suddenly being ok albeit, tired, rashes, palpitations but suddenly within last 5 weeks cant walk properly, my hair has been ruined to the point its so dry its matted i will have to get it all cut off!! i have been confined to bed or couch, i am terrified and worry if i will ever be better. i asked doctors to do a colonscopy and endoscopy the biopsy and blood tests came back normal but i have been on a gluten free diet for 5 weeks now but to be honest dont feel any better. I therefore have no idea if it is the gluten or if it is thyroid? as the symptoms are very similar. surely if it was gluten i would have felt better by now!?? although ive heard some ppl take 6 months to feel better. I do have a vitamin d and b deficiency which i am on tablets for but i dont think thats the root cause. the doctors are usless and i have been in hospital for 5 weeks and they cannot tell me whats wrong!!! its like some mystery illness. again they diagnosed me as chronic fatigue sydrome but i dont think all the symptoms match that.
I asked them to test my thyroid but will not scan my thyroid i dont know why???!! they say the symptoms do not match thyroid but they do! they have tested my tsh and t4 which they say are normal. but they will not test the antibodies, i have asked them til i was blue in the face but they say the thyroid is normal, yet i could have nodules and they will NOT scan my thyroid, i dont know what to do??!! thing is i have trouble swallowing sometimes, wake up coughing, choking in sleep sometimes, a cough that comes and goes, sore throats that come and go. they cant see inside my throat so why are they so against me having a thyroid scan????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they have scanned everywhere else in my body but there!!! i also thought about mercury poisoning as i have a mercury filling that goes out onto the gum ive had it since i was 16 im now 31. please help i want my life back!! i cant walk, cant sleep, cant do anything. and i cant get any help from the doctors
is this gluten or thyroid???
