My symptoms:
*Overwhelming fatigue. Showering and getting ready wears me out. This is what got me to the doctor's office in the first place. It has gotten to the point where I can't function normally. I just left the second college I have attended because I could not handle it.
*No menstrual cycle. I have been very regular until about 6 months ago since which time I have only had one.
*Sensitivity to touch. I am easily bruised and bleed easily. Light touches are often irritating.
*Increase in breast size and excessive tenderness and heaviness.
These are the most worrying of the symptoms.
I'm not sure what my story is yet. I went to a gynecologist/obgyn last month and had several tests done. All they found was that my Vitamin D is very low. The minimum healthy level is 30 and mine was 15. I'm taking 10,000 IUs a day and will go back to have that tested again next month.
I was not impressed with the staff. I got a message telling me my results were in and to please call. When I called I talked to another nurse who saw no record that I had been called or even that the Dr. had looked at my results. She checked into it and called me back. No directions from the Dr. Just a generalized, "She usually recommends you take 2000 IUs and come back in two months. Ok. Well a Vitamin D deficiency does not cover all of my symptoms.
I know that there is more wrong with me than this. I'm not sure what the next step is from here. Do I wait and get tested again next month and see what the results indicate? I feel like I ought to seek another Dr. I suspect hypothyroidism or a cyst on my pituitary gland. An endocrinologist would be good if I knew for sure, but there are a host of other possibilities. The biggest problem is that these symptoms show up across the board and many of the issues are interrelated. Is this a physical problem with psychological effects or a psychological problem with physical effects?
I just want to know what is wrong so that I can fix it.
