Firstly I'm a 20 year old female with a family history of Coeliac disease and hypothyroidism and my thyroid tests have been:
TSH: 3.5 ref(0.2-5)
t4: 19 ref(9-24)
TSH: 3.2 ref(0.2-5)
t4: 22 ref(9-24)
with negative TPO
I have had chronic constipation since I was 2 and taken laxatives everyday since then. After being undiagnosed with a b12 deficiency for years I recently started injections which helped my tiredness but hasn't got rid of it and a few other things. I have had dry eyes for 3 years now which has only gotten worse and makes it so incredibly difficult to do my university work and use computers. I also have a few other general symptoms such as bad temperature control, I can't stand up for too long in one place because I faint and get a rash that goes up my legs and I have brain fog.
I have been to 3 hospital departments where I have been passed on form doctor to doctor, the majority of who give minimal effort in each appointment ad just don't care. How can it be that I'm taking laxatives everyday, putting 10-20 drops and ointments in my eyes everyday and getting b12 inejctions and a bunch of other things and they can't tell me why?! I'm 20 yet apparently this is all fine. I could just cry and cry at the moment, I honestly don't know what to do next. My biggest concern is my eyes as this effects my life the most, how can i get any kind of job if i can't spend a few hours on a computer?
In terms of tests been done I've had the endoscopy to rule out coeiliacs, had RF, ANA and a bunch of other antibody tests for sjogrens, rheumatoid arthiritus, Lupus etc but its difficult with these as you can have negative tests but still have the disease.
Right now I'm on the anti candida diet to see if this helps me but the more I read into this diet the more it seems like rubbish. Can anyone suggest anything for me??
