I was diagnosed with Graves Disease 3 years ago and over the past 12 months I have started to suffer with muscle ache down the left side of my body. My endo keeps saying my levels are 'fine' even though i am still getting the usual symptoms of feeling spaced out, breathlessness, panic attacks and tightness in my throat and the muscle ache.
Over the past month my muscles have been getting worse to the point that I am struggling to walk and move my left arm, I am also getting pain and weakness in my shoulder, up my neck on my face. I am in agony when driving and whilst at work, but if I dont work I dont get paid and cant pay my bills so I force myself to go everyday.
I last saw my endo at the end of June and they have finally agreed to remove my thyroid to alleviate the symptoms, but I am still waiting for my surgical appointment.
Has anyone else had this with their muscles? and does anyone know how long I will have to wait for my surgery? This is now really starting to affect my life, work and my marriage and seriously need help.
