Over the past few months I've been getting numerous symptoms. I have been feeling tired throughout the day, no matter how much sleep I get.
A feeling of being literally heavy headed. Have had a some loss of strength in my left hand and experienced some fumbling at times lasting only a few seconds.
I have had a blocked/stuffy nose for most days (sometimes it clears by lunchtime). Have been getting more headaches and my eyes sometimes get a bit blurry and quite often hurt if I touch them. Also have been more irritable and seem to hear noises a lot more as if hearing is heightened.
Also had bouts of dry flaking skin (looking like dandruff on arms). Incidences of brain fog, sometimes when I'm typing I can just lose the flow of what I was writing and it takes a while to get back again. I can also be speaking and will totally forget a word and take a second or two to remember.
General muscle aches up and down both legs and arms, (the almost constant burning type sensation you get when your leg/arm falls asleep) seems to be worse in thighs and biceps. Some joint aches/pain all over. Numbness/pins and needles(ish) sensation in feet, especially when in bed.
Most recently been having periods of unsteadiness when stood up, can be walking and suddenly start falling to the left, I don’t necessarily feel dizzy I just tilt. In fact last night I was stood checking my phone and the next thing I knew I was stopping myself from hitting the floor (had turned almost fully around to the left). I have noticed that it is always to the left, not sure if that indicates anything! Also on a night I sometime have trouble walking, feeling as if my knees are giving way so it looks like I am drunk.
Finally, I have read about the basal temperature test etc so have been checking that for a few days. My morning temp as soon as I wake has been 35.3 degrees C for the past 5 days and doing the every 3 hours test it is 36.3 for the past few days. I used a braun ear thermometer, so not sure if that affects anything.
Some background, I’m a 38, male, I had growth hormone deficiency (hypopituitarism) when I was younger, then didn’t see a doctor for 20 years until last year when I was diagnosed with Diabetes and sent straight to hospital in DKA. Initially diagnose type 1 then reclassified type 2, then back to type 1 then 2 again and now think type 1.5! I have carpal tunnel syndrome and get acid indigestion both of which were blamed on the diabetes. I’m on a low carb diet to deal with the diabetes and lose weight, which I started to when I first started earlier this year but have totally stopped loosing weight now (on the one weekend I had off the diet last month I put on nearly half a stone). Doctor originally thought I was in constant borderline hypoglycemia so cut back some of my medication but this hasn’t helped.
Thanks for taking the time to read and any thoughts would be welcomed.
