Can anyone shed any light?

In the past month I have suddenly felt really unwell. I am permanently tired and need an afternoon nap every day, on top of eight hours a night sleep. I am also starving (have eaten so much I have gained half a stone and literally never feel full), and prone to migraines. I look terrible. My face is puffy, bloated and pale.

In general, I am fairly healthy, although I have heavy periods with bad mood swings.

I have a doctors appt booked for 10 days time, but was wondering if this rang any bells with others? I had full bloods done 3 months ago and am not anaemic or diabetic.

Have you had thyroid tests? It could be over or underactive (I know its common to lose weight with over active, but some people put it on, I did and I also couldn't stop eating)

I just mention thyroid as your symptoms sound very similar to some of mine.
