feeling rough the last few days, but not coldy at all. Getting worse though. Aching a lot like bones are made of iron. Hot flushes and dizziness especially when I stand up.
Even going up stairs makes me out of breath and my heart beats so fast, I feel like I'll pass out or like my heart will burst out of me. I'm 24 and not usually majorly unfit or anything. I haven't been able to carry my DS or raise my arms up or change his nappy etc
DH sent me to bed so I've been lying down for well over an hour trying to sleep but I can still feel the blood pumping all over and breathing faster than normal.
Sorry for major hypochondriacness but I don't normally get sick other than bog standard colds so I'm a bit freaked out.
Yes forgot to say actually had blood tests on thurs - full blood count, vit b12 and thyroid. That was more for ongoing tiredness, it's got a lot worse suddenly. Not like normal. Lot of headaches too. Not sure if I have a temp - thermometer battery died! Feel hot/cold in waves with the dizziness.
I was thinking of going to the walk in GP tomorrow but I'd feel a bit stupid going there with such vague symptoms
I don't think it's flu, I don't feel bad enough tbh - I hear with flu you seriously feel like death, and I feel crap but not that crap iyswim
Virus is likely... You can't do anything about them though can you... worth going to dr anyway just in case. This is when I really hate not having a car
Was wondering about a UTI, I had one a few months back and had no idea until it got quite bad and it delayed my period by over a week, I thought I was pregnant. Guess I'll be peeing in a pot tomorrow then <quaffs water>
Well, went to the walk in and saw a lovely doctor (actually a physician's assistant) who was really thorough. But she's baffled. Blood sugar, ears, chest, blood pressure all fine. She said as I had blood tests last week anyway I should get those results and see my usual GP surgery. She also said I may need to have an ECG.
Phoned the surgery and the blood tests were all clear, even the iron levels are fine. Got an appointment next week, and I'll describe it all again as it only got worse since I last saw them.
I mean it could be anything but shortness of breath, heart racing after climbing stairs are symptoms I had when my thyroid was overactive. Also feeling hot all the time was another one. If they didn't test your thyroid, it's one option to consider although as I said it could be anything.
