I've just come back from the doctor and again a waste of space. I explained the symptoms I've been having for the last four years, arm shoulder aches and pains, zero lobido, poor sleep, pins and needles in hands, hard to lose weight etc etc.
Well apparently when you get in your late forties, losing weight is harder and apparently there are a lot of people who have lots of illnesses that they never get to the bottom of and have I thought about it being emotional problems! I pointed out I only get emotional when I don't have the energy to live properly - I'm 49 not 89!
He (a locum) said it won't be my Vit D which was 16 (50-200) as everyone in the northern hemisphere is low, won't be B12 which again 50.1 (25 - 165) is quite low.
When he wrote out an online website "5 steps to emotional wellbeing" I gave up and left.
I will carry on smoking as that keeps my TSH low, carry on taking my 5000mcg B12, 1200 iu of Vit D, and all the other things that will hopefully make me feel normal and energetic again.
I am selling my shop in our village as I can't cope with it anymore due to the fatigue and brain fog and will never darken the door of the village doctor again!
Can you tell I'm really upset lol.
It does feel better to get if off your chest and writing this has stopped me going to bed and sobbing - No I'm NOT depressed :O)
