I have been living with a problem that I thought I would share with you.. only because it just might help someone with the same symptoms
Four years ago I started feeling quite unwell..I could not sleep ..always had very cold hands even though I felt hot .. and got very sweaty ( not nice)..felt very tired all the time..and the worse thing, started putting on a lot of weight even though my diet and routine had not changed
Me with my youngest son
I just thought, this was how things were going to be from now on ..and I put it all down to early Menopause ..but then I started to get heart palpitations and that's when I took myself of to the Doctors
I just got bigger and bigger
The Doctor was very good she did an E C G test all the blood tests.. and told me I had high blood pressure
bigger and bigger.. I was so upset as I am only 5ft 1in with size 3 feet I was never meant to be this big (size 18)
Well a week later the Doctors rang me and told me I had Hypertension an under active Thyroid gland
for an unknown reason all of a sudden my immune system had attacked my thyroid gland and stopped it working.. ( It is a small gland at the base of the neck..but "my o my" it controls so much)
So now I am on tablets for the rest of my life to replace it..
It has been a long journey back for me.. and at last I see someone who I recognise
It has taken 3 years to get my dosage right and a year to lose the weight
I am back now
The high blood pressure has gone and I feel so much better ( although I still have the cold Hands ! but I can live with that..
Thank you for all your support and sweet words
