For almost a year I have had heart thumping, accompanied by intense sweating, raised blood pressure and an almost uncontrollable urge to urinate. Its a horrible feeling which I find very debilitating. These symptoms can last 5 minutes or more and I can have several an hour day and night (Note: I am post menopause).
I saw my GP last September who wrote to Nuclear meds consultant who I see usually 6 monthly and had my appointment brought forward. The consultant was not at all interested and in a letter to my ENT consultant described my symptoms as 'Complains of feeling a little tired, has occasional flushes and sweats on exertion'. I could have cried! I wrote to him expressing my distress at his lack of understanding of my symptoms and very clearly explained them: this didn't elicit a reply.
I am 3 years 4 month post op (TT) following papillary carcinoma with metastasis into surrounding tissues & lymph nodes. (my thyroid wasn't where it should have been, I had no bridge & the area was filled with malignant fatty issue) . I take 175 /200 Levo alternate days and have a not well suppressed THS. At each nuclear meds appointment I am told they will see me in a year and so far my next appointment has been 6 months because of the THS.
It really really irks when I am told my cancer was 'the good one' it wasn't good for me and I'm sure it hasn't been good for anyone else who has to take daily meds to stay alive and have to life life full of symptoms such as fatigue, sialadenosis, sweats, joint and muscle pain etc. etc. etc.
Sorry I'm having a bad day, moan over
