Thank you Shaws. Yes, I've seen that before which is very reassuring.
My symptoms - esp the low pulse and temp, point towards hypothyroidism from what I have read.
Tiredness – from approx. 2.30 pm onwards extreme tiredness. I have to sleep for approx. 30 minutes (which helps a little, unless I sleep longer and then usually feel worse!) or by 5pm I’m consumed by fatigue and cannot function. Tiredness debilitating 4-5 days before period.
My hair has become extremely thin (fine all over, no bald patches), esp at the sides and tying my hair back is difficult due to seeing my scalp through it.
Hands and feet are almost always cold. I’m usually cold generally when the rest of my family are not!
Bad memory – forgetfulness. Struggle to string sentences together sometimes due to never remembering the correct words!
Constant spots, especially around my chin!
Weight gain – 18lb in the past year!
Dizziness from lying/sitting to standing. Also dizzy when walking (drunken feeling!)
Resting heart rate 47 – 55 bpm
Basal body temp approx. 36.4 pre ovulation, 36.6 post ovulation
Short periods, usually light lasting 2-3 days. 4-5 days of premenstrual spotting.
