Hi everyone. I finally found a forum I could post on - thank goodness - because I'd like some advice/help...
In March this year I started getting aches and pains in my legs; mainly around my knee joints. I had already started getting cold hands and feet. Over the past few months I have become more and more tired. Sleeping doesn't seem to relieve the fatigue. I'm losing concentration and having problems with my short-term memory... both to the point where I recently managed to burn myself.
After reading one of the threads here I also finally have some idea of how to explain the weirdness in my head and of my vision - brain fog. It feels like I'm just waking up or just going to sleep almost every second of the day. I'm completely detached from everything. It's a very strange and disturbing feeling.
I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and given antidepressants, which did absolutely nothing except make my fatigue worse.
A couple of weeks ago, I asked for a TSH to be done. It came back as 2.17 (ref range 0.5-5.0). Here they don't run T3 or T4 unless the TSH is above 5, so I haven't a clue what those results would be.
Any help greatfully appreciated. My doc just told me it was chronic fatigue and there was nothing she could do. Very helpful.
I look forward to reading the other threads. This board already looks like it's going to be really helpful and supportive.
