Hello everyone!I'm so frustrated, not sure where to turn, or who to talk to!
I have been researching, and sometimes that can get me into trouble HAHA. I first went to the fibromyalgia board, i just feel so yucky.
I went to the Dr. last Thursday, I have been feeling ill for awhile now & just keep putting it off. I have had my fair share of Dr. visits in the past few years. I had a hysterectomy when I was 28, dr left an ovary so I wouldn't have hormone problems he said. Well, I am 32 now. I can think back & had severe mood changes starting about a year after my surgery. No one ever told me to get hormones rechecked, just said I had the ovary, i would be fine, sent me packing uneducated. A few years ago, I just felt plum crazy, my reg. dr. didn't no what to do with me & referred me to a psych dr. Knowing my history of the hysterectomy, never once did he even suggest I get hormone testing. So, for almost 2 years I believed I was Bipolar. I was on a gazillion of the mood stabilizers & AD's combined with no luck from any of them. Finally ran across someone that suggested i get hormone testing & BOOM!There it was, almost no estrogen, completely ZERO testosterone & low progesterone. So, after Dr. visit, pyschologist visits, pyschiatrist visits I have had my fill of dr's HAHA.
Now, I have gotten all the above taken care of I started feeling like I just can't make it thru the day. I am tired in the morning, I can't hardly get myself out of bed. I feel like I have the flu most days. Starts after I go walking or exercise. I feel weak & fatigued after exercising. I stopped to get gas & meant to get 20$ in gas, i only pumped 10$. Went into pay & the lady was trying to hand my $10 back from the $20 I gave her. I told her I didn't get change back?She said you only pumped 10$. I was very light headed and confused!I told her I felt like my blood sugar was low, I had just exercised & needed to eat something. My body hurts all over. I walked yesterday & today, but it has been about 4 or 5 days since I walked. I have to make myself do it. I feel so tired and sick afterward. I had been dealing with it & trying to act like nothing was wrong, but finally had to stop going to the gym & it's been 2 weeks since I had gone. After I get done I have such a bad headache & I'm so shakey. When I walk, I just feel completely exhausted & ran down. It doesn't matter if I walk for 30 minutes or an hour. I have been running a low grade fever & it mostly happens at night when I am feeling completely exhausted. My glands in my neck feel swollen & the back of my throat gets red. But all of that just hapens in the evening when I feel so tired?
Today, my husband & I had some running around to do. We stopped at the bank to put a deposit in. We went thru the drive thru. I could not get it into my head that we did go to the bank?We got to the shop & I told my husband, We forgot to go to the bank!He said NO we went remember?I had to think about it really hard?This is not normal!And then, before I left I was asking him if he wanted me to make the bank deposit???????????I am really feeling bad today. I am eating every few hours. Im so sure that I will have to change my diet drastically if all of this is the case!I had 3 strips of turkey bacon & a cup of coffee with splenda/creamer, an apple. We went out for lunch & I had a turkey sandwhich with cheese, lettuce, onion & some creamy pasta stuff with a glass of sweet tea.
When I went to the Dr. I was completely caught off guard. They wanted the 3 hour glucose test & vitamin D. My dad & my uncle both have Diabetes, and I'm not sure what other family members have it?So, I guess we will see what happens. The results should be in sometime this week I would think?
When I look up symptoms on computer they seem so vague. I have the light headed, confusion, headache & shakey feeling. The dr said all of this would make you feel ran down & that would cause the achiness in your body & feeling of sickness?Is this true??
I am so sorry I rambled on forever, I just hope this week goes by quick & I can get an answer.
Thanks for listening!!
