I'm here because I'm at my wits end...
I have been feeling really unwell lately, and after several useless trips to the Doctor (who insists there is nothing wrong), I decided to just google my symptoms to work out it out myself. I really thought that I was being a hypercondriac because my symptoms are an odd mix but I was surprised to find that most of them fell under the scope of having an overactive thyroid. I am still uncertain though, I'm not sure if I should go back an insist they do a blood test or just leave it.
Incredibly itchy scalp (I've changed shampoo and even used the T/Gel to no affect)
Headaches (I've had an eye test, my vision fine)
Anxiety - I've always been a worrier but I now I'm finding social situations with friends and family are stressing me out. I cannot face going outside, my stomach is a knot before I go anywhere.
And in the last 2 weeks...
Tiredness - to the point of exhaustion. The weird thing is I sleep fine, in fact I've had three days off and slept non stop the entire time.
Aching - my whole body aches, its uncomfortable no matter how I sit or lay
Random bones hurt - like some of my ribs, my thigh bones, my shoulder
The most worrying things for me is that I've lost weight. I've always been thin but in the last month I have lost 2 stone but I'm eating more than ever. Once I walk home from work, I literally pig out on packets of crisps, cakes, anything easy I can eat (I feel so ahsamed)...and then an hour later I have dinner. Yet I have an empty stomach feeling that keeps me awake at night, if I was living alone I would probably order a take-away and have a second dinner but I don't want to worry my fiance.
Does any of this sound familar to anyone? I've been off work sick for three days and I need to return soon, espeically as my Doctor doesn't believe anything's wrong. I'm really really worried that I may loose my job because i can't focus. What should I do?
