Hi everyone, I went to the doctors yesterday as ive been experiencing some symptoms for quite some time. Being a typical man I tend to put off visits to the doctors and have to be coerced by the wife.
My symptoms have been chronic fatigue that comes from no were and hits me like a truck. Various aches and pains for no apparent reason, I can be prone to irritability anxiety and mood swings ranging from aggressiveness to being really low and upset for no apparent reason. I am over weight and have struggled to loose it despite diet and exercise.
One thing I didn't notice were my eyes and the fact that they are bulging. They are prone to becoming blood shot too. I also have red eyelids. I have pain in my eyes which is worse when looking right,left or up and down. It's like an ache type pain.
My doctor spotted my eyes and has done a series of blood tests to find out if it could be a thyroid problem.
I have other symptoms too but they may not be thyroid issues. I get an explosion type pain in my chest near my heart (heart has been checked out and everything is fine) I also get a tight constricting chest pain which travels up my neck and down my left arm.
Then there is bowel issues frequent loose motions and a horrible jelly discharge with a constant urge to go.
Thankfully my doctor is listening and doing lots of tests. Does anyone here think that I could have a thyroid issue?
