Why is it doctors don't link our symptoms up?
I told my doctor about me losing hair, my arms looked like a plucked chicken! I've also started losing a abnormal amount of head hair when I brush it. It is extremely dry as is my face and scalp, my skin almost peels off under my chin it's so dry! I too have gone grey very quickly and young (32 after giving birth to my second child) I also went through the menopause at the same time. I've just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (which is the worst it has ever been, every joint seems to hurt, from one degree to another). I'm always tired, somedays I can't add 2+2, this is someone who started studying for a Masters Degree 3 Years ago but found I couldn't concentrate and I finished up not just giving up on it but also my work last year . This was very hard to do, as I have always enjoyed studying and loved my work! I felt helpless. Why can't the health system keep up to date with these conditions to keep us not just healthy but enable us to feel as if we are contributing to the workforce! My rant is over, I hope I haven't offended anyone as I'm not that kind of person, my job was helping others and I really miss it and now I need help from those who are supposedly trained and are paid a lot of money, compared with others in the community, they don't seem capable of doing so!
