So pleased to find this site.
Thank you in advance for reading my waffle and any insight you may be able to offer.
A little about me. I'm 37 years old I started suffering with fatigue and feeling generally low back in 2012 and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Commencing Levothyroxine initially helped ease the symptoms but gradually the feeling of utter exhaustion, mental confusion etc returned and despite going back and forth to the GP my thyroid bloods indicated I was on the correct dose therefore I excepted that this was me and I had to adapt my life to cope therefore I left my stressful career.
A few years ago my periods became irregular but I put this down to the stress of losing my dad and then my best friend.
Last year I experienced my first ever UTI and I have had urinary frequency problems ever since.
I was signed off sick from work November because could no longer cope. I could barely get of bed, I felt confused, repeatedly getting up in the night to pass urine. The doctor said he thought I was suffering with depression and commenced me on anti depressants. I was also referred to urology and i had a pelvic scan. Scan was normal and urologist said i had an irritable bladder.
I went back to my GP a couple of weeks ago in tears and he decided to run some hormone blood tests and he phoned me last week with the results. He said the results were not what he expected. My Oestrogen levels are below 20! 😩 and he said anything below 20 would indicate Post menopause however I have a raised SHBG and normal FSH and LH.
So confused by the results I am seeing an endocronologist next Friday so no doubt things will get a little clearer.
The menopause never even entered my head and I'm feeling really emotional coming to terms with it.
Has anyone had similar confusing blood results like the above?
Will this get better with hormone replacement therapy as I currently I secretly wish of going to sleep and never waking up 😩 i'm just so tired of life. (I'm not thinking of doing anything to myself but I shamefully can't help thinking that way)
