My blood tests are back...the only values which are off are oestradiol, which is LOW, and a few other things which having looked them up would point to a problem with my liver, though my liver came back "normal" (apparently nothing much happens until you have actual liver failure though!).
My doctor thinks I have PCOS and Iis sending me for an ultrasound. If I do have PCOS, which I thoroughly doubt, I don't really have any of the right symptoms, then I am sure that it would still be more of a symptom in itself than a cause, as I never had any of this a couple years ago.
The weird thing is, if my oestradiol is low, how come I am overweight? Oestrogen packs on the weight if I remember correctly, so I am a little concerned that if it does go back to normal I will suddenly become a balloon!
Not that is really the problem right now, the main thing is I have thyroid symptoms, fatty liver symptoms, so many symptoms of all kinds of things and yet the cause is still evading me. I have tried adjusting my diet, my sleep, my work, my digestion via supplements, there's not much I haven't tried but nothing has made any improvements. I feel like I am navigating towards a unmarked island without a map, in the dark, while its foggy. I have read so much and I'm still going round in circles. I am sure there are lots of people who feel like this and I sympathize!
So the purpose of this loooong post is just to say shout out to anyone who has experienced this and I would love to hear from anyone who has any ideas.
Thanks so much.
