Hi, I'm 32 and feel as if I am falling apart physically and emotionally. To start...I have had a low thyroid since I was 18 and have been taking Synthroid ever since. I am tired all of the time and have no ambition to do anything. My right side of my body, head, neck, shoulder, back and arm have given me great pain since I was 24. One day at work it just went numb and got extremely tense and sore and I have struggled with this pain for 8 years now. Also, I have had terrible pain in my stomach for years, usually 5 out of 7 days a week I am so bloated and full of gas that I just want to lay down and cry. It is a struggle getting through work each day. Sex has always been a problem with me as well, I find it painful sometimes and most of all avoid it because I know I will be more bloated and left with a bladder infection each time. My skin is out of control, producing so much oil that an hour after I was my face it looks wet and my acne is terrible. I also suffer with mood problems, unable to make decisions and my mind seems cloudy.
I have seen Neurologists, Chiropractors, family doctors, Naturopathic doctors, Periodontists, had acupunture and the list goes on. I have been on several pain killers, muscle relaxers and anti depressants and nothing has helped. I am ready to give up. My doctor is tired of seeing me for I think she may think I am making all of this up in my head. I am 32 and want to be healthy! Do you have any suggestions?
