I have seen my GP twice in the past months due to new symptoms I have experienced. I am a petite woman and gained 12 pounds in 2 months which I have never done in a year, feel nauseated and tired all the time, constant daily migraine headache and I told the GP I feel I have a lump on my thyroid because it's difficult to swallow. Well they did a thyroid ultrasound that was normal and said my thyroid test came back on the low end but felt she didn't need to treat and repeat in a few months. My mom has hypothyroidism and had a goiter near the age of 20 removed. The GP says my constant migraine that will not budge is not due to thyroid. I have Fibromyalgia as well so the GP says the weight gain could be from being tired and not as active. Again I have never gained weight like this! I have a lot of fluid retention in my fingers and ankles and suffer from Raynauds syndrome as well. I have a blood clotting condition Factor V Leiden Where my blood flows slower and I have had a blood clot in the past so no hormone drugs for me. Someone please give me some advice as I can't take the exhaustion and migraine much longer. I have already been to ER a week ago for a morphine cocktail and it took the pain away to sleep but it is back full force and it makes it very difficult to work!
