I have had no energy, itchy skin heart palpitations and anxiety for over a year, I only visited my GP when my hair started falling out. I didn't go sooner as in the past I have visited a GP with similar symptoms and was told it was depression and stress and sent to a therapist.
My GP ordered blood tests, wasn't convinced, had to ask him to check further ordered more detailed tests, I don't remember the exact levels but I remember my TSH being <0.05. So he decided that I had an auto immune related hyperthyroid, prescribed beta blockers (which help but make me really tired) but will not prescribe anything else to help with symptoms until after I see an endo specialist. Even though I've been told now it's NOT in my head and I can relate to a lot of the stories on these forums, I still worry that I'm being dismissed like I was before.
I have enough energy to perform my duties at work but have watched the rest of my life fall apart because I don't have the energy for anything else. It feels worse knowing whats wrong but living in limbo waiting for solutions.
I've thought of reducing my hours at work so until I can try and get a handle on everything, but I don't know if that's jumping the gun before I see a specialist.
