Hi newbie here, I haven't got a diagnosis as of yet as I am being bounced from department to department :/
But I am feeling incredibly tired, isolated and of course in pain!
My anti nuclear came back positive, but my Dr is yet to do anything, I had a PE a year ago and still get chest pain, shortness of breath and feel like my bloods to thick sometimes I don't know why. when they had me on Heprin for the PE I felt so good it was weird.
My hair falls out, skins dry, eyes ache have high cholesterol (not off the chart) I crave sugar all the time, have excessive fatigue, loss of interest in sex, cold hands and feet. irritability, depression, anxiety and headache. I am so sick of feeling unwell. I force myself out with the dog and then get pay back where I am so fatigued I can't stay awake. I am also overweight by a few stone which annoys me as I was a slimming instructor!
This has been going on 5 years or more. my skin flares up in the sun too. like an itchy pimply rash in my elbows, sometimes over my face.. I itch quite alot and itched badly during my last pregnancy.
My original Thyroid test came back negative but I have since found maybe they didn't test it all.
I'd just like someone to say hey you're normal this is not a problem this is what you ask for, I am tearful all the time and feel my hormones are so out of balance.
I am so forgetful. The pain I am in in the right side of my neck & shoulder, bicep,elbow,wrist, then yesterday I get pain in my collar bone. I had been moving a few boxes and I pointed at something.. I thought my bone was going to splinter :/
I have read page after page after page on my symptoms and they keep coming back Lupus/thyroid so here I am.
Is this common am I mad and what the heck do I do to get someone to hear me.
So this is me the train wreck.
Hope that someone out there knows what I mean and that it isn't to hard to follow.
I can't give the levels as my Dr hasn't told me. I will go back to see him but really need to know what I can say to him to get him to help me. A locum Nurse tested my ANA my Dr was annoyed but as it's positive I am glad she did.
