Hypothyroid? Hypoglycaemia? M.E?? What is it?!

Hi Guys;

Looking for some advice on this as Docs not really all that helpful.

So I keep getting these symptoms, not all the time, but on and off - sometimes I am fine for weeks & then I come down with this and I can be feeling crap for hours/days/weeks.

Suddenly feeling extremely exhausted & tired.
Feeling like I am really slow moving, I couldnt move quickly if you paid me!
Muscles feeling like they aren't working, esp in my arms.
Feeling all fuzzy headed & confused.
Unable to concentrate or think properly.
Feeling nauseous/sick & a bit dizzy.

I struggle to find the energy to exercise which makes me feel lazy & frustrated. I feel like I am just being a lazy git but I really don't have the energy to work out, which in turn get's me down because I cant get into a routine to lose weight & get fit.

Other symptoms I have ALL the time :

Chronic & permanently dry lips that need constant application of balm/gloss - been ongoing for 3 years and started suddenly.
One side of my nose feels "blocked", I can only lie on one side in bed or I cant breath as my nose closes. I can see that it is swollen & blocked in my nostril.
Dark circles under eyes which have got worse over time. Also they're puffy.
Pale & sallow looking skin on my face.
Really dry hands which no amount of moisturiser seems to help.

Blood tests have come back "normal" for thyroid & glucose. Doc's have told me its "stress", "S.A.D", "one of those things" and nothing has been resolved. LOVE THE NHS! ffs.

Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions or similar stories, I'd really appreciate it.

Again, I'm sounding like a broken record. If all tests are coming back normal, I'd suggest food intolerances. Keep a food log to determine what you've eaten compared to how you're feeling. It seems like half the people I know have some kind of food intolerance.
