I retired early after 42 years of working, due to unrelated health problems One of my biggest problems now is my weight at 23 1/2 stone, not due to overeating but lack of exercise,and
Waiting to go in to hospital and have an operation on my tyroid.
I was really poorly this year in May and June having pleurisy, Sent me for x-rays and CT scan came back showing this problem.
I have been suffering with shortness of breath fatigue for a number of years previously had x-rays and a scan but nothing has Come up can they miss the symptoms and diagnosis.
The other symptom I suffer with is terrible sweating which has been also going on for number years to the point of embarrassment when you go out, I was wondering if anybody else was suffering with this symptoms as well as me.
And if you are have you managed to sort this out.
The other big problem is mobility walking is painful and getting very breathless, does this improve with the medication being given.
Interested to hear from people in the same position as me, hopefully can improve my situation with the knowledge of others.
Thanks advance for any help.
