Hi, really hooping someone can help I feel like I'm at breaking point. In February I had Bells Palsy due to an infection behind my ear. Within a month of this I gained a stone and was feeling extremely tired, i was told it was post viral. The tiredness over the summer was so bad I had to go to bed in the afternoon and be in bed by 10 and struggle to wake 9AM the next day. In September I began feeling extremely cold like I couldn't control my body temperature no madder what and this has condition. I made an appointment at the doctors and he said it could be an under active thyroid. Additional symptoms: hair thinning, really irritable, now gained 2 stone in 9 months and can't concentrate. My blood test showed anaemia show i have been prescribed tablets but the TSH was 3.42 (normal). I feel terrible. Do i just accept what the doctors said that i'm fine? Im worried the reason i got Bells Palsy was misdiagnosis of the infection and then the symtoms, i don't want to get worse like i did then as i effectively lost a whole month of my life. Can anyone recommend anything? Thank you.
