Hi all, Since I started puberty I noticed I fell under the extra slim catagory, yet I eat better than any of my friends, Very active, Could talk for britain, Getting to about 15 I new my weight wasnt normal and started to have seirous body issues, My friends where all starting have curves ect and I still looked a 12 year old boy... (and still do ha). Since I was 16 I have been to the doctors numerous times (they are awful!) My thyroid was tested when I was 16 and I cant remeber what test it was but She was concerned as my thyroid level was below normal... 4 months later I was tested again it fell in between the bracket of being 'OK' and was advised to go home and eat lots of syrup sponges! (later I filed a complaint!). Being 16 I took no notice and didnt really push for anything, I have been a few times since in the last year and they havent offered more tests, I fall under 'underweight; on my BMI, I have fertillity issues which is another ongoing slow process and im addamant theres a connection linking the two. I'm 22 now and I've lived on my own since I was 15 had a stressful time to say the least, But Im in a comforable place in my life right now and what I have thought is stress ect is actually not normal how ive felt. Im serverly tired like all of the time i struggle getting up for work yet I went to sleep early, I get home and I feel like a need a nap just to face to dishes, I have massive anxiety My mood swings are awful I feel so depressed (please dont put this down my age, Im very aware of when im hormanal with PMT ect) and my weight I really struggle to keep anything on ive tried protein shakes, ensure's, and quite honestly I cant afford it, Im pretty sure I have Hyperthroidism And I would really appreciate some help on how to push getting diagnosed and what to put forward to my doctor... I have a appointment for 19th of this month... Many Thanks sorry to go on!
