it's really only in the last couple of months am I actually learning anything about it. all I could have told you was that when I first git it and it was undiagnosed for months, I had no energy. I was TATT,, yeah that IS a medical condition, lol
I had palpitations, was vomiting all the time. MY GP at that time never sent me for a blood test. In fact he told my Mum he thought I was anorexic and it was 'all in my mind'. It got to the point where he refused to see me. Then one day Mm demanded he saw me, and he said OK I will but she'll have to come here, I can't waste my time coming out. I collapsed in the surgery and he asked me if I wanted to go to hospital. I said no, but I want to know what's wrong with me, I'm not imagining it.
I'd only been in hospital half an hour when they told me it was PA. Later when I went back to my GP he said he was sorry, if he had left me another 2 weeks I would not be here. Then he said if I repeated that he would deny he ever said it. And so, my admiration for any medical professional was effectively switched OFF, for all time!
I had my shot today, after 2 months (more really) of sheer hell. The first thing I noticed is how alert I felt, and this was immediate,, driving home from the docs. Then how warm my hands and feet felt, within an hour they were almost uncomfortably hot. Even swollen a bit. It was as if I'd had no circulation and it had suddenly started up again. I've never documentsed my symptoms before but since I'm now on a 3 minth trial I am going to start. Has anyone else ever experienced these symptoms and how quickly they resolved after having a jab?
