Just wondering if I am going crazy. After reading many of posts in this board, I'm starting
to think that a lot of the symptoms I have been having
aren't just from getting older, as if 37 is old.
I have always been an energetic person, but gradually in the past 6 months I have noticed increasing symptoms of
feeling slow or tired, intolerance of heat and cold, feeling drowsy no matter how much sleep I get, poor memory(mostly short term) and concentration, constipation-a bit of weight gain, thinning hair, dry brittle hair, sometimes
I'll use a hot oil treatment, a conditioner, and a leave-in conditioner and my hair can still be so dry that my scalp hurts and it looks and feels like straw,
dry, course skin, puffy face- also my cheeks look swollen-at first I thought I had gum disease that affected my cheeks(crazy huh? I have severe allergies
so I've been hoping it's just sinuses), my menstrual cycle has changed-periods more often and endometriosis
symptoms, a horrible dizziness/vertigo spell last Sat.
and overall feeling of lethargy, some depression, mostly due to frustation from these symptoms.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. I am underemployed so I don't have a lot of money to spend
on doctors. I am trying to determine if I need to see a
doctor, if so what kind, or if this is just my imagination.
