Always been fitness fanatic and healthy.
After last child rapid weight loss of 2 stone, despite eating huge meals plus constantly snacking in between on chocolate bars , craving sugar .
Chronic fatigue, practically on my hands and knees crawling to get about . This can change daily.
Muscle weakness , difficulty walking upstairs and holding anything above shoulder height.
Shortness of breath, worsening.
Most recently, panic attacks out of the blue , woke me from sleep. Any time night and day, even though I am not stressed or a worrier or panicked.Felt like all nerves were going to fail / have a nervous breakdown. Extremely debilitating.
Rapid heart rate whilst sitting / lying down . Can last for hours. Happens out of the blue, like a switch being flicked on.
Heart pounds after walking to toilet at night ( 10 paces) takes at least 5 mins to subside.
Heart feels very weak , like it's being strained.
Intolerance to heat/ exercise.
Very dry itchy skin , red dry eyes (optician suspected sjogrens).
Constant thirst which is never satisfied.
Hoarse voice , constant in last few weeks.
Constantly feel dehydrated and hungover feeling. Brain fog.
At least 5 toilet trips at night.
Insomnia ( not because of toilet trips).
Droopy eyelid intermittently.
Facial spasms on left side of face.
Feel very shaky all over and visible shaking of hands.
All symptoms vary daily but have increased in amount presenting and severity over time.
I've had tsh done a while back but have not got the results. I was told all ok.
Only thing ever queried by GP was high calcium reading - 10.4 .
After researching I thought maybe parathyroid but was told that I was making the reading high by maybe being stressed !
My maternal grandmother had a goitre and had her thyroid removed re hyper. My cousin has hypo problems , same side of family.
Thank you for your help.
