The doctor I saw yesterday said he could tell I was ill but he can't do anything until I collapse. So got to wait until after new year to see my doctor!

it sounds like an over active thyroid to me to, have you had your appointment letter? it's worth calling and seeing if you can get in any sooner, explain symptoms as they are some of the more intense ones, and it's likely they'll get you in ASAP.

A lot of your symptoms fit with over active thyroid.

You sound very poorly to me. I hope you get some effective assessments and treatment started very soon.

Rang 111, call holder sounds concerned but nurses are busy. Got to wait for a call back, she said if i get worse call back straight away. So hopefully i'll get sorted today!

No, i have to wait until 27th January to see a tyroid specialist.
When i go to A&E they make me wait 5 hours and say everything is fine and send me home, so even though i've got worse i don't fancy going in. They honestly make me feel like i waster there time :/

You really need to see another Dr. Maybe try ringing Nha direct for advice or go to A & E. that does not sound right at all & you need tests to investigate. Are you on medication for your thyroid?

I've been really healthy until the past year.. I'll quickly tell you what has happened.. I'm only 18 and i'm so weak i can barely move from bed!

1. Found out i was expecting my first child on 23rd December 2011.. Healthy and very enjoyable pregnancy until i reached 23 weeks and lost my baby boy due to infection and a suspected weak cervix on 6th April 2012 (aged 17).

2. ended up being ill for a month after and they finally discovered i had after birth still in me, had a D&C in may; didn't work so had another in June. That also didn't work so end of june it came naturally followed by pelvic inflammatory diesease. (just turned 18)

3. Julyand August.. Concieved in July (planned) and Miscarried at 7 weeks on August 16th natuarlly.

4. Started college in September so wasn't planning on becoming pregnant; found out baby had no heartbeat on the 18th december at 7 weeks, D&C on the 20th december 2012.

Around November i got Diagnoised with an over active thyroid i'm about 8 stone and 5"7.

Since all this sometimes i can't move from bed my knees can't hold my weight that my boyfriend has to help me up and come to the toliet with me. I find it hard to walk up the stairs. I keep getting pain under my right ribs. When i eat i feel sick and dizzy. I have no appetite. I can't walk far without feeling i'm going to collapse (including walking down the stairs). Wheni visit my sons grave i can only stand there for about 5 minutes without wanting to fall sad. I keep getting sweaty hands and feeling like an oven. can't concentrate on my work and i normally get distinctions, cant even cope doing a pass! What do i do? I can't cope with it, it makes me feel worthless and a time waster sad.

doctors never do anything and i've been on so many antibiotics that don't help.. any advice would be so greatful sorry for nattering on sad
