I am a 28 year old female. I have low hormone levels. Last test read my hormone levels were 23 normal for my age is between300-400. Prior to the blood test I had been feeling very tired, I have lost about 15 lbs now I'm about 102 lbs and can't gain any weight. Now for the past week I have been experiencing shortness of breath. I am able to breath just don't feel like I'm getting a satisfying breath. I got a chest x Ray, check for blood clots and more blood work..of of which was normal for bronchitis.. clots..or any heart or lung related issues.. I know Griswold can be a normal symptom but for how long? My dodoctohas put Me on medium dose of Zoloft, lamictal 25mgs 3x daily in hopes I could gain weight and the hormone levels would correct themselves.. he said that although I eat it's not the proper nutrients my body needs and he is considering me in a way malnutritined even tho I do eat quite a bit and gave never had any type of eating disorders. I feel miserable.. I am constantly having shortness of breath and get little relief from deep breathing exercises.. I also believe that anxiety has a part in it to. Has anyone experienced this? How did you find help? How do I convince my doctor that I am not living.. at this point it's just survival.. I have two young children and I'm a single mother.. I can't go on like this.. I have had great success speaking with the anxiety forums about the anxiety part of this..now I need answers for the possible medical aspects..thank you!
