Hi, I was told my thyroid was over active a couple of months ago which came as a complete shock. I've struggled with feeling exhausted, weight gain, puffy face, palpitations, breathlessness and regular bowel movements for ages but put it down to stress and depression for which I've taken medication for years. Since then & whilst awaiting an appointment with endocrinologist at hospital I can only describe my symptoms as that of feeling as though my body is completely out of control. Sometimes, I move and think so slowly I feel like I'm closing down. At other times, people have struggled to keep up with me as I speak so quickly as I can get out what I need to say quick enough. I become almost manic and rush around.
My doc did another blood test yesterday 'peroxidase' and got hosp appt through for next week. I got ready to go to work this morning, but dropped everything and ended up just sleeping most of day. So worried I'm going to lose grip on life. I feel so depressed and as though I'm out of control of my body. I still don't know what's going on with my thyroid but so desperately hope that there is light at the end of this tunnel.
