Hi I am new to this forum, I've found out of complete desperation. I stumbled across the hypothyroid checklist when looking for causes of a feeling of something stuck in my throat (which I've noticed increasingly the last few weeks) my history though is long, with me actually checking almost every box in every area of symptoms, excessive fatigue, muscle aches, odd buzzing sensation, blurred vision, breathless on slight exertion and the list goes on, these were all over the last 4 years or so. To which my current diagnosis is CFS, as all my tests have shown within the "normal" ranges. Apart from the lump in the throat (don't continue reading if you're squeamish) since May I have also developed ongoing menstural issues, with prolonged and heavy bleeding, which has worsened after an operation to find the cause. Also during that time over the period of a month I gained over a stone in weight with no considerable change to diet or exercise. I feel at the end of my patients and constant visits to my gp prove ineffective as they are not willing to even consider a thyroid issue due to "normal" results. I'm sure it's not normal to feel so unwell on a daily basis with no reason or explanation 😔. Has anyone experienced similar? Where do I go, what do I do from here? Feeling helpless. Thank you for reading xx
