I went to see my GP today. I said I feel a bit daft trying to explain my symptoms but they feel real. I told him that I cannot tolerate heat and that I sleep with the fan on every night, now it's during the day I'm finding I'm over heating as well and my internal temperature is just so hot and sweaty all the time. I'm having terrible difficulty sleeping, my brain just won't shut down. I have constant nausea, I haven't actually been sick, but wretched enough times. My appetite has gone down and even though I have eaten or made myself eat, I have lost weight. I feel disconnected most of the time and that's a very odd feeling. The worst thing is this and this is what I dont understand, I've started feeling very very anxious and I'm having panic attacks! I had to be escorted off the train last month because I had what seemed to be an eternal panic and a feeling of going mad. Tonight I'm sat in the surgery waiting to be seen when I can feel myself panicking again. I don't understand and it frightens me that my body seems to be doing its own thing and I feel helpless to control it. The doctor said he is sending me for blood tests to test for hyperthyroidism. I was shocked! I'm not hyper, my dreadful insomnia leaves me feeling shattered every morning and I just cannot function for most of the day because of the extreme tiredness that follows. And because I feel so tired and so ill, I then start to panic. I'm constantly clearin my throats which I did mention today, that was actually the first thing that started happening about four months ago. But it could be post nasal. He said I make it worse by constantly trying to clear my throats and then it becomes sore. I'm so so weary so how can he think this is hyperthyroidism, will someone please help me out here as I'm worried. Sorry for ranting but I'm at my wits end. He said it could be menopause, but I didn't think you felt THIS ill with the menopause. Thanks for reading.
