Hello! I am Charlotte and I am 14. For a while I have noticed my body is not right. I just could not put my finger on what the problem was though! I’m young so obviously I should really have any physical problems especially seeing as I have been healthy all my life. However my sister and lots of my family have auto immune disorders so I thought maybe I could too? Here are my symptoms.
- fatigue no matter how much sleep I have
- losing weight no matter how much food I eat
- shaking all over
-muscle tremmors and twitches
-eye pressure and visual disturbances
-anxious ALL THE TIME
- muscle weakness
- Brittle nails!
- and I just feel weird and different.
- feeling like my legs are going to give way when I’m walking and going upstairs
So there are a lot of unexplainable symptoms that are debilitating. My thyroid is swollen which is what lead me to hyperthyroidism? Graves’ disease? As I said my family have a history of auto immune conditions so I suspect it could be that? Mum keeps dismissing everything I’m saying though as I’m typing this my thumb is trembling as if I have low blood sugar when I don’t! Argh please help. Should I go to the doctors? I know it’s not conmen in teens and children so that’s why I’m hesitant. But I don’t want to leave it as I know it can be dangerous if you don’t get it treated. Thank you - Charlotte
