My nan has had a multitude of symptoms most prominently since jan 2012 when the hospital diagnosed her with mild vascular dementia due to the memory loss and ignored all of the other symptoms which had started at the same time. The symptoms included extreme sensitivity to the cold, night sweats, muscle and joint aches and pains all over her body, extreme fatigue, lethargy, loss of appetite and nausea, apathy and depression, dizziness and a loss of balance causing her to lean to one side and multiple falls where she fell backwards. She had tingling in her arms and legs, said she felt like she had a lump in her throat, developed low sodium, and her blood pressure went low after always being high, she had palpitations, said it hurt when she tried to think, and her skin was really dry. She also had digestive issues with delayed gastric emptying and gastro reflux, and constipation. Since then all of the symptoms have persisted and gotten worse and now her hair is falling out as well and her nails are becoming brittle and she says the lump in her throat is worse.
She was admitted to hospital last week as slept for 39 hours, we asked them to check her thyroid, they said it was normal, they checked tsh, t3 and t4 but not antibodies.
Am i insane for still thinking there is an undiagnosed issue, as all of her symptoms fit, but no doctor we have met will listen.
