I'm a female in my mid 40's. I have Type 2 diabetes but am diet controlled. I also have high blood pressure and take a BP med and diuretic. I've been feeling unusually cold - it feels like an icy compress is being applied to various parts of my body . The tops of my legs are the worst and they sting with pain. I'm not sleeping, suffering badly with insomnia and absolutely drained of energy. I find if I do something like a walk it takes its toll the day after. Yesterday I went out for about 2 hours, didn't feel well whilst out and I've had the night from hell as a consequence.
I'm cold to the extent I'm putting my heating up to 25 degrees whilst hubby is moaning the house is too hot. I was previously someone who was usually hot and didn't have the central heating on unless unseasonably cold!
As I feel so rubbish I've not felt well enough to go to work today and have managed to get a Drs appointment for this afternoon. I've recently had blood tests done, checking for inflammation - told result was 1.76 (borderline) and nothing to worry about. Also told liver, thyroid etc were all "normal" but not sure what actual thyroid tests were done and what the figures were. My blood pressure is high and all over the place and my pulse rate is also up. My resting pulse is normally somewhere between the high 50's and mid 60's but has been up in the high 80's and 90's and went up to 101 at the weekend (all resting pulse rate readings).
Any advice would be gratefully received.
