I Can't Go on Like This

From: Cinnamon2007 - 21 weeks 6 days ago

Hello

My name is Nasteha and last year I started having debilitating symptoms. Sever fatigue, air hunger (difficulty breathing) unrefreshing fitful sleep, constantly feeling like I have the flu, mentally off (I literally feel like i'm losing my mind) sever constipation (I've gone months without any elimination) tremors, stuttering, and memory loss. I've been to the ER more times then I can remember and one of the thyroid checks they did came back as a red flag, however, my doctor said it does not mean anything because thyroid levels change all the time. Other test coming back as red flag are Creatine Kinase and Act in (Smooth Muscle Antibody (IGG). I tried all types of diet and eliminating certain foods, various vitamins, minerals, and herbs. I my diet now is not great, however, I eat organic, and grass feed because I have access to this way of eating. When I first started exhibiting these symptoms, my doctor ran a full panel of blood work and discovered that I had a vitamin D deficiency. I thought for sure that was the cause for all my discomfort, nevertheless, I've since treated it and now feel worse. Some please help, any information would be greatly appreciated. My symptoms are extremely intense and unrelenting. I know it has nothing to do with mental health because I have two degrees in psychology and have worked in mental health for 14+ years and have dealt with anxiety in the past and know the difference. Lastly, I don't have an appetite so I hardly ever eat. Nevertheless, I've gained so much weight and no matter what I do I just keep gaining and can't get it off. Please, doctors have failed me and I'm now starting to feel suicidal, this is no way for a human to live. I'm 36-years-old and feel that my life is over, so if anyone have any suggestions, please share.

Make an appointment with an Endocrinologist. It seems to me that a primary care doctor doesn't really know how to treat thyroid issues. I'm struggling myself with difficulty swallowing and also just figured out that I probably have Cushings disease as well.
My primary.doc told me about 3 yrs ago that the lump I'm feeling when I swallow is globular sensation. I believed her. I now know she was wrong and that its associated with my thyroid. I finally decided I need to see a specialist and my appointment is in July so I will have to suffer for 3 months until I see them but thats 3 months I'm willing to wait.

You aren't alone. There's a lot of us out here going through it as well.
