im trying to find some answers and hoping you guys might be able to help.....
Ive been backwards and forwards to the dr's for the last two years because I wasnt feeling good...
tiredness but cant sleep
difficulty loosing weight
headaches, neck ache, tension
pins and needles/numb in hands mainly but sometimes in hips and mostly at night
The dr ran every test she could think of.....tyroid being one....and they all came back fine. She decided i was depressed and persuaded me onto a anti depressant and councelling. I came off them after a couple of weeks as i wasnt comfortable taking them and they had no effect except i found it even harder to sleep.
a friend of mine who is a personal trainer said, you must have a really slow metabolism as you are always on the go and eat well but i was still overweight. Ive always eaten a diet quite high in sugar and sweetners and I realised this might be making things worse. I found out about a way of eating called paleo.....no processed food, just real food. I jumped in with both feet, started to feel better, lost weight...still slowly but it did shift. I started to feel better too, my skin improved and i was sleeping better.
Since then my marriage broke down and ive let sugary things creep back in now and again. Im finding I still hold quite a bit of fat round my middle and im feeling quite stressed, anxious, mood swings, very heavy painful periods and not sleeping again.
Im not sure where to go from here........try some new supplements (i currently take vit B6p5p and omega 3 oil).....go back to the dr.......try and iliminate sugar from my diet again (can i really live sugar free forever?!!)
I was wondering if it could be caused by high cortisol? underactive thyroid? adrenal fatigue? or something else totally
Any advice anyone?
