Hi, I'm 21yr female and I feel like rubbish!
For the past 1 1/2-2yrs I have felt absolutely exhausted all the time. Some days I feel better than others. But recently it's just got almost unbearable! I can barely get out of bed, I sleep 12hrs+ sometimes needing a nap in the middle of the day too.
Also have really achey knees, bad cramps in my calf muscles which are ridiculously painful, pins & needles in my feet/back/thumb, swollen scalloped tongue, now my fingers feel really podgy though they don't look any different. My neck is fairly tender and my glands are 'up' nearly all the time. Brittle nails & hair have developed recently, as well as odd dizzy spells where i feel like the room is spinning or I feel unsteady (not collapsed or fainted...yet). I did have glandular fever around 5 years ago.
Went to the doctors, BP is fine, bloods say I have no thyroid/kidney/liver problems and not anaemic. Doctor says she has no idea what is wrong with me so to keep an eye of symptoms for 6 weeks and to have a check up especially if my fingers still feel podgy as it might be infectious arthritis.
I just feel awful and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do!! I've been searching and it seems to be that I have a lot of hypothyroid symptoms. I have seen bloods don't always show if hypo. Could I be hypothyroid? What can I do?
Feel like i've ran out of options here!
