Most of the posts here touch upon people commenting how well one looks when in fact that person is suffering.
I'm having the reverse experience at the moment. I'm feeling more or less ok (some back ache but bearable), my blood tests are all ok (bar a raised GGT but that's normal for me), organs are all ok, thyroid ok, recent brain and spine MRI and lumbar puncture are all fine BUT I look dreadful!
I have dark circles under my eyes, I wake up with slightly puffy under-eyes that doesn't really improve during the day, I look tired, although I'm not, I'm pale (but not anaemic). Everyone tells me how shattered I look, it is starting to worry me - makes me think I'm missing something, maybe there is something lurking in the background that hasn't yet materialised enough for blood tests to pick up (doesn't this disease make us paranoid).
Mentioned it to the GP who said I'm not looking abnormal but then I had make up on, so that didn't count, plus they always go by blood tests and mine are fine.
Anyone else who has a similar experience?
