Hi, I’m 23 years old and for about 3 years now I have been suffering with various symptoms including:
- Tiredness to the point that I struggle to open my eyes in a morning and kind of feel like I’ve been hit by a bus when I first awake
- Daytime fatigue
- Brain fog
- Pale dry skin
It’s made my life a misery recently and I struggle to concentrate or hold proper conversations and I’m forgetful at work. Now I’ve been to the doctors numerous times and had blood tests however no one has ever told me what tests have been done (although I know I was tested for celiac), and everything has come back “fine, no further action required”. I’ve also been prescribed antidepressants even though I had these symptoms way before my mood dropped and anxiety started. Now I imagine my doctor will have tested thyroid function however I’ve heard that they don’t do an in depth search and was wondering if anyone knows if I could still have a thyroid issue even tho past blood tests for various things have come back normal. Just trying to find hope that I’ll find out what the problem is one day.
Would it be worth getting a full thyroid screening done privately? Or would I be wasting my time. Any help would be appreciated, and I know it doesn’t help that I have no previous test results to show.
