Im 32 and my body is falling apart....and nobody has an answer.

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?

I know its been a long time since this post was made but to go along with Maryann's comment, you should look up you birth-chart. Repressed or overexerted energy can cause health problems in the parts of the body assosiated with the sign, and extend further if the problem isnt delt with. I actually identify with a lot of the things you mentioned and whenever i delved into my chart it really did help me to understand where a lot of the problems began. Once you understand the cause, it makes it easier to begin figuring out how to fix the problem.

Since you have had many diagnostic tests and seen many specialists without receiving a definitive diagnosis, it is quite possible that a problem with your emotional and psychological health can be causing your physical symptoms.

Depression may be the underlying source of your physical conditions. Try meeting with a psychologist. Discovering underlying issues and working through unresolved problems may have a positive effect on your overall health.

Thanks for your response. This is something I may look into! Anything is worth a try!
