Hi, I'm new on here & wondered if any of you can give me some advice?
I've been feeling very very poorly for about 4 years now. My hair is very dry & falls out in big clumps. My skin is horribly dry, my face is puffy, get anxiety attacks, abnormal periods, swollen throat all the time, dizziness, fainting, feeling like I can't breathe properly, really short tempered & moody, not being able to lose weight.. But most of all absolute extreme exhaustion, to the point it is ruining my life. I am only 27 & have 2 young children. I can barely get through the day.. My whole body is just heavy & my eyes are constantly rolling in my head from the tiredness. I'm always poorly with viruses & I sometimes feel like my whole body is just shutting down on me. I feel hopeless.
I have seen my doctors several times about it all, they tested me for everything.. I even was sent fir heart scans etc.. The only thing that showed up was that my hormone levels were below normal but were classed as 'borderline'. I was put on medication but didn't feel better at all and after having the dosage changed about 4 times by 4 different doctors the last one eventually decided that actually they are prescribing me anymore because actually I don't need it due to being 'borderline'
I have now not had another test for nearly 2 years & my life is a living hell. It doesn't feel worth living at all some days. Whatever this is has just taken over my life, I would give anything to just feel normal & well.
Should I demand the doctors retest and treat me?
P.s both my aunty & grandmother suffer from hypothyroidism
