I went to go see my Dr last week because I was feeling well. I was feeling tired,sleepy,jittery,depress,anxious, lost of appetite,nauseous,light headed,headache,trouble sleeping at night,cold and some pain on my upper stomach. When she walked in the room she checked my blood work that I had last yr in sept 2015 because i was feeling about almost the same way as i did this time .but this time i was like dying.the rrason she showed me my blood work from last sept was because i never went back😕 sooo she told me the blood work from sept showed I was anemic and my thyroid was off. Could this be the reason why I feel like I'm dying !??? She prescribe me some iron pills that i need to take two times a day which have 325mg .had me do a blood test again and wants to see me next Wednesday. Which I will be there for sure. But what i don't understand why have me wait a week to see how bad is my thyroid and anemia. I have been taking the iron pills for 5 days and I'm still not feeling well .I know it takes months but i am still feeling bad and my anxiety has gotten worse. And been feeling really depress,arms and legs hurt, still feeling lightheaded, stomach discomfort and i have been jerking here n there like my leg or arm all of a sudden jerks. I think my tongue is swollen because I have teeth marks on the side of my tongue which I noticed 4 days ago. I regret not asking my Dr how low was my iron and how bad was my thyroid. In that moment I wasn't feeling well. I thought I was going to pass out. She also prescribe me medication for my dizziness. What if my iron is really low and need blood transfusion or what if I need meds for my thyroid. I also forgot to mention that I was diagnosed with lupus in 2011. I was surprised that the Dr told me my thyroid was off because all the Dr that I would go see in the past yrs said my thyroid was fine after I had bad anxiety and depression and would just prescribe me meds which I never took because I knew it had to do with something else.I always had a feeling there was something stuck in my throat that would bother me when in would swallow and hoerseness but drs never paid me any attention. could it had been sign of my thyroid My question is could it be I'm feeling this bad because my iron and thyroid have gotten worse and does thyroid has to do with me feeling anxiouse ,depressed and slowen tongue? And does it take yrs for blood work to show that your thyroid is off and poeple with autoimmune disease like lupus have under active or overactive thyroid ?sorry for making it a long story but my husband sometimes thinks its all in my head so I am kind of alone Here lol
