What could this be

I know you are all going to tell me to see a GP but I'm just wondering if these symptoms mean anything to you. Bear in mind I'm under 30 and had a baby recently.

- sudden sharp pains in left leg and back
- some sudden pains in neck
- tiredness
- eyesight feels poor like I'm always straining but the optician said my eyesight remains the same
- sudden thumping pains in head

I do have an under active thyroid. I just don't feel right. I constantly feel like there's something wrong. I had bloods a few months ago which showed high iron and vit d deficiency which I have addressed.

Should I be super concerned?

When you say tiredness, do you mean the normal tiredness you have with a baby or something more?

How long do your headaches last?

I think more tired than usual given that she doesn't wake in the night.

The headaches are like sudden thumps for 10 seconds and then stop again.

Thanks for replying smile

Hi OP.... the 10 second headaches, pains in left leg and tiredness rang bells with me. I hate to say this, but you did ask. I had all this plus dizziness. I did not have the eyesight symptoms though. After 2 frustrating years of going backwards and forwards to various doctors, I have been diagnosed with mild MS.

I can only assume this is not a common set of symptoms foe MS because it took so long to come up with the diagnosis. In fact the first neurologist I saw said it was the menopause (I am in my 50s). So, don't panic . It also struck me that you have a thyroid issue. I was tested for this and diabetes what felt like 100s of times.

Good luck...... and yes go to the GP and get proper medical advice rather than asking strangers online. BTW, my doctor surgery is dead quiet at the moment. I phoned my GP the other day to enquire about appointment and a doctor phoned me back within 10 minutes (it wasn't urgent). So please call.

Thanks for your reply. I will call the GP. My MIL has Ms and I know how hard it is so I'm sorry if you are suffering

I hope the GP helps you OP. And I hope it is something easily treatable.
