I usually post in the gerd section, but am currently getting a second opinion for a post surgical problem and I am waiting for results from that before I get my friends there up to speed.
At least one of my symptoms my be related to the surgery I had in March.
For the past 6 weeks I have become extremely intolerant to the cold(It is winter here in the southern hemisphere) My feet, hands and nose especially feel like they are snap frozen. My fingertips also feel kind of numb. I don't usually feel the cold this way, except once when my iron level was 3. (13 when checked 17 weeks ago). I have infusions often and opted for injections in my bum this time. 10 injections over a period of 14 weeks. My bloods will be checked early Sept to see if this method was successful.
I have been waking up several times during the night with my arms and hands asleep.(this has been going on longer than 6 weeks) I have pain in my thumbs, forefingers and wrist off and on.
Hair loss, fatigue, impatience and migraine aura (without pain)
Constipation off and on. (again unusual for me)
A constant sensation of a lump in my throat and difficultly swallowing phlegm. YUK. (this, I thought could be surgery related)
Also, about 4 weeks ago my forefinger on my left hand went white all the way down to my second knuckle, and the my fingernail went blue before the colour came back. It lasted for about 2 to 3 minutes and happened on 3 consecutive days. Nothing that I can think of precipated this happening, and each time it happened I had just got out of bed.
It looked just like a dead persons finger. Freaked me out.
In the past I had a nodule discovered on 1 side of my thyroid and years down the track, another on the other side. I had a FNA on both which was NAD.
I have a blood pressure of 100/65 and a resting pulse of 47.
I have no serious medical conditions.
I look forward to your feed back.
Thanks in advance
