I have been to see my Doctor today to speak about why I feel so ill. I have a diagnosed underactive thyroid and am on medication. I told him that I am suffering from poor sleep pattern, pains in my hands and feet, tingling, numbness and excessive weight gain almost 1/2 stone in one month. Less than seven months ago I was a size 8, now I am a size 14/16....its destroying who I am!
He adivsed me that I am fat because of what I put in my body, there is no one else in control of that, just because I said I had a small pizza last evening - the rest of the week I ate like a rabbit. He has suggested that I take anti depressants or beater blockers but I have refused. I told him that I am sick not mental and that these offers are not getting the problem of why I can go weeks without bowel movement but yet the moment I take a chemical to move it, it moves and gives me the opposite. I have explained that its the discomfort that makes me take something!
He is right I don't want my life to be like this.....He told me that only I can help me because there is nothing else he can do. He is the head of our practice and the best Doctor we have...now I don't know what I can do!......I am sobbing with frustration.
I have posted before all my symptoms and test results before, the above is only the start point.
