Can someone advise please?
I have been feeling wiped out/steam rollered for sometime now. I cannot do any exercise without being confined to sofa on and off for days. I am so shattered it's seriously affecting my life. I am irritable/cold feet hands. Some days I cannot do more than get son to school (2 mins round corner) and do a few light household things. I sleep badly. My upper body is weak particularly my upper arms and I can barely lift them if I do too much. It's really getting me down.
I ought to mention that May 12 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Finished chemo last Sept and radiotherapy Jan 10th this yr.
Obviously I immediatley put all this down to finishing treatment and it taking months to get over. (I'm all clear and healthy now). But I am convinced it's not effects of that anymore. I'm on Macmillan board and cannot find anyone feeling this bad. Most are back at work now and I couldn't even consider that. Saw Oncologist for routine follow up and she said this is rare to feel like I do. And she likened it to Chronic Fatigue Syndrone or after effects of Glandular fever. Said see Dr again to be referred to specialist. The radiotherapy was to the Clavical region too and did read somewhere that radio to the neck can set off thyroid probs but Onc dismissed this.
Prior to this got full bloods done on 24th April 12 and all good apart from Thyroid. Results are:
TSH 0.09............T4 23.5 all B12 and everything else fine. Dr said slightly high result but not enough to medicate and to repeat in 6 weeks which I had today so seeing follow up results Frid prob.
Sorry for long story just wondered what you thought? Desperate to find out what's going on...
thanks in advance.
