Hi Im a 39 year old female. I would describe myself previously to have been active and healthy.
Then 4 years ago my father died at 55 years old suddenly without warning of a blocked aorta. Within 12months of this i began feeling very tired etc and in the end they diagnosed me with auto immune hypothyroidism. I am on 125 levothyroxine now and my levels are fine.
But the last 9 months i have started feeling ill and so tired most of the time. They prescribed me with simvastatin for elevated cholesterol. I have a permanently numb patch on my left leg, i get tingles and burning sensations in my legs and now arms which come and go. I have being told that i now have double vision and have to wear glasses. I get a lot of twitchy feelings. Recently i have, which is worrying me the most started to wake up choking and coughing, i get out of breath really easy now, and am waking up with severe night sweats even when it is cold.
I went to my doctor and told them this as i was getting to my wits end and they prescribed anti depressants for depression and sent me to an ear nose and throat specialist who said i was to have antacids for possible silent reflux. I have had MRI which came back clear and blood tests for various other things which all came back ok.
It is all driving me crazy i feel terrible for days on end then it seems to subside a little then come back again i am so fed up, can anyone give me any advise. Is it possible this could be the start of ms even with the clear mri.
