Hi mums,
I'm tearing my hair out at this stage! I've been suffering for a few years with the same symptoms and my gp is about as useful as a chocolate teapot! So I'll include my symptoms and see if anyone has any ideas! (I'm changing gp shortly but I thought this might help.)

Ok so, I'm currently being treated for low blood pressure and high pulse rate with bisoprolol fumarate.
I have pain in my bones, I know this sounds weird but it's everywhere, my hips, knees, shoulders, feet, back.
I'm constantly exhausted, and not like mum tired (that's normal now lol) but like falling asleep in the day tired no matter how much or little sleep I've had.
I suffer headaches most days.

I don't drink, smoke or take drugs. I eat healthily and am my ideal weight. I'm at my wits end, I don't feel right, I know theres something but I can't put my finger on it and like I said gp doesn't particularly care!
Any ideas or your own experiences would be amazing!! Thanks mums

Blood tests should be done to see what your thyroid levels are like.

If GP is unhelpful consider registering with another practice.

I've had thyroid checked, apparently it's normal, sorry should have included that! Apparently vitamin and iron levels are good too.
Have forms for the new GP so just filling those out now, thanks for responding?

Have you had your vitamin D checked? xx

I have, apparently it's fine xx

Will you have a full medical when you join the practice? If so, explain your symptoms & ask for a re-run of the bloods, Inc markers for inflammation.
Lots of things it could be, probably only minor, but you must be alert for less so.

Ooh I don't know that's worth asking about. I just want someone to say "no you're not crazy, it's because of this" lol. I'll be sure to ask about those, thanks!
