I have no idea what I’m expecting anyone to help with but I get so sick of being fobbed off by doctors that I just feel the need to vent somewhere. To give a brief history I’ve not felt well since the birth of my 6th child 7 years ago. Exhaustion, sleep issues, period issues, I got diagnosed in 2019 with an under active thyroid and since starting on the meds I’ve gradually felt worse and worse. The symptoms seem never ending, I always feel unbalanced when I’m standing, like I’m on a boat, my legs feel shaky and weak, I feel so sick when I’m moving around, I get out of breath climbing the stairs, tinnitus, shaky hands, feeling freezing cold then boiling hot and if I feel really hot I then feel even weaker and so sick 😕 anxiety and panic attacks, those are my most problematic symptoms. However for the last 6 weeks I’ve started itching every where, some days it feels like my skin is crawling. The worst of the itching is down the side of my jaw, the front of my hairline my eyelids and the top of my thighs, it seems to come on in bouts and every time I get these bouts I get stabbing pains in my eyes.
Every time I call the doctor I seem to be fobbed off and given an extra medication to add to my ever increasing collection, I’m currently on levo, citalopram, naproxen, stemetil, adcal, norethisterone, omeprazole and now they want me to take antihistamines for the itching. It feels as though nobody is interested in getting to the root cause of what’s wrong and they want to treat the symptoms. Totally at my wits end, I’m only 47 but I feel like I’m old and if it wasn’t for the children I’d crawl into my bed and never get out.
