I wanted someone elses opinion
I have been back and forth to the doctors for well over a year now and no one can tell me what's wrong ive been in pain and so ill for all that time.
Ive just been talking to my family to ask about all their medical history and my great Auntie has said that she had the exact same symptoms as me and was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. The doctors are baffled as i have a weird set of symptoms:
Tiredness (8hours a night of sleep or more and i still fall asleep in the meetings etc), Slurring of words, fuzzy brain, lack of concentration, foregtfullness, inability to pay attention or take in what a person is saying, extreme clumsiness and not being able to control the coordination of my hands, pins and needles in my hands and feet, Dizziness, feeling that im not in control of my body, intolerance to cold, either feeling like im burning up or freezing, Poor focusing, sore throats, choaking fits, dry mouth and skin (i.e psorasis), hair has become lank and lifeless, bad skin...spotty, weakness in my limbs, bad balance, immense pain in my joints especially my neck and back, headaches so bad i think my head is going to explode, panic attacks, depression, mood swings and i just about cry at anything on the telly.
I know this is a long list but iv got to a point now where im ready to stand in the middle of the doctors surgery and refuse to move until i have had every test done in the world and its affecting my day to day life.
I was just wondering if anyone thought this would suggest a problem with my thyroid and whether the doctor will think im too young at 22 to be suffering with it and what i should do if it does point towards a thyroid problem.
My great aunt suffered from it at 26.
Would appreciate feedback
