I would like to make a post to call out to any people who have any serious health problems or have family members with such.
Here is a quick synopsis: Summer of 2010 all the sudden I started feeling sick a lot. No cough, no sore throat, no fever, just plain felt drained. I mean I would sleep 10 hours and then get up and all day drag around feeling like crap. This went on and off for a while. Basically about 2 weeks ago its come back really strong. I make myself go out and hang out with friends because I refuse to sit around all the time. Truth be told I feel dizzy, faint, and exhausted ALL the time. Sometimes I have bowel problems such as diarrhea, and sometimes I can't go to the bathroom. I do seem to gain and loose weight pretty quickly, much more often than I used too. Lastly my hands and feet are cold ALL the time, I never used to have that problem. Sometimes I even get a tingling sensation in them out of no where. When I am teaching I feel like I am going to pass out and often I have to sit for a minute.
I've been to the doctor about 5 times for this and he keeps telling me there isn't anything wrong with me, and maybe I need to sleep more. I had blood work done to check my thyroid because my mother has a thyroid disease and a lot of my symptoms match up with those of someone with a thyroid problem. Results come back saying my thyroid is normal.. This is back around August/September..
I am brainstorming what else could be wrong with me. I've thought about Diabetes but when I mentioned it to the doctor today he seemed pretty firm in doubt that I didn't have diabetes.. I did another blood test today but I am not even sure if that will include my thyroid because if I remember correctly that was a special test. Anyways assuming the results come back saying I am healthy then I will just go to another doctor. I also had my blood pressure checked today and it was nothing too abnormal. He listened to my stomach ect in my complaint about having occasional bowel irregularities and said they sounded normal.
I really don't know what else to think. I am almost dead certain I have a thyroid problem because of my symptoms and my mother having it, but I can't be too sure.
Ok so thanks for reading all that if you did. Now what I am asking for is any insight or experience any of you may have had with yourselves or family members. I am just sick of feeling like shit all the time. I don't care if I have a disease I just wana know what's wrong with me so I can get medicine. I am so stressed over this lately it's ridiculous and I know that isn't going to help anything T_T
PS if you want to keep a comment private just say so and I wont publish it for anyone else to see.
