Hi. I am deciding to post this in hope for some help because my symptoms are beginning to take over my life. I am unsure whether or not it has to do with my Thyroid, but it was my best guess.
Last year, I was experiencing stomache aches and nausea. So much that I had to leave school several times. I missed about 24 days.
The symptoms have gradually gotten worse.
My doctor actually prescribed anti-depressants, which may have been appropriate at the time, but I am convinced my symptoms are something different from depression.
I almost constantly feel nauseated, and when I stand up I get very lightheaded and dizzy. There have been times when I was out in public and have needed to stop and lie down because I felt like I was going to throw up and/or pass out.
Occasionally, when I am in heat (such as the shower) and am standing up, I get severely nauseated and nearly fall over. I have managed to keep down vomit this past year. I hate throwing up.
When I am in these states, I do the trick where I pull up the skin on the back of your hand to see if you're de-hydrated. I never was.
I also get hot/cold flashes randomly.
I have a constant ringing in my ears.
Irregular bowel movements.
Menstral cycle does whatever it wants to do, follows no schedule whatsoever.
I sit in bed almost all day because everytime I get up, I feel more sick.
Get headaches fairly often.
Still taking anti-depressants, but currently leaning off of them.
I had basic blood-work done but everything came back fine.
My doctors have no idea what's going on.
I also had a basic test done to get the levels of my thyroids. It also came back normal.
I am extremely desperate at this point. I never get out and do anything because I feel really sick all the time.
If anyone has any information about this, PLEASE share it with me. I'm open to all suggestions.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
