I have a very weird feeling in the back of my head .. i m sick to my stomach.. my neck hurts and my fingers, wrists, toes, knees, ankles hurt sooo bad. Im so fatigued and miserable. My eyes bother me.. ive always had perfect eyesight but now i can barely see anything 10 feet ahead of me. Ive had a thyroid test and it was 0.94... so pretty much in the normal range. I ve had migraines since I got pregnant with my first son. I m 20, 5 9, 125 lbs. I have a 3 year old and a 4 month old. (Both csections) my hair is also falling out but that could be because of just having a baby/ combined with stress. My gp is worthless and doesnt seem to care about anything. I have 2 beautiful kids to take care of and mommys no fun laying in bed sick every day. Btw: ive been this way for about 2 months. Im starting to get depressed because i worry somethings really wrong with me... and leaving my children is my worst fear. Im gonna try and go to my primary tomorrow and get an mri done of my head. I just want to feel better :(
Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. The symptoms you have mentioned are very complex and more information is needed to arrive to any conclusion about your health. I suggest you should visit your doctor at the earliest. You should also try to keep yourself in a positive frame of mind and be cheerfull towards life, atleast for your 2 beautifull kids. They really need a healthy mother to take care of them. Wish you good health.
welcome to health care magic,
first of all,don't stress too much ,keep calm,this may be a part of migraine along with cervical spodylosis or rheumatoid arthritis but for an exact diagnosis to be made,you must get properly examined and invetigated by a physician before getting an mri done.
The answer to this question lies in understanding the concept of "mind-body" relationship. For example, when someone is appearing for an important examination, he/she may experience palpitations, trembling, sweating, abdominal discomfort, breathing problems and many other physical symptoms. In this case we realize that these problems are due to anxiety in the mind. The same holds good for medically unexplained pains which develops following excessive worrying or stress (whihc is common in depression).
The multiple symptoms (some of them unrelated) should make you think of the possibility of depression which can present with physical problems. A detailed evaluation by a specialist can help you understand your problems and help you overcome them.

Hi, I have had a fluttery feeling in my throat off and on for a couple of weeks and /or palpitations.Also a sensation that there is something in there or in my upper chest. Heart rate is regular, no other symptoms. I am hypothyroid for many years. It is not severe, just bothers me and I worry what it is.
I am 32, 5'3" tall, 128 lbs. I've been feeling light-headed and nauseated lately and have been suffering from constipation. I have a bowel movement maybe every three days, and that's with encouragement from prunes or an herbal laxative tea. I also have a very slow metabolism - I consume on the order of 1500-1800 calories a day (I keep a food diary for 2 weeks about every 6 months to make sure I'm on track), but I work out 10-15 hours a week. Hard. Here's my history:
I have hypothyroidism and am on synthroid (50 ug). I'm a Manager/Scientist during the day, but I teach fitness classes as a second job. I exercise quite a bit: I teach kickboxing, sports conditioning, and weighlifting. I'm starting up a bootcamp (once a week) next month. I also race triathlons, so I swim (2500 yds 3 times a week on average), run (6-10 miles 2 times a week on average) and bike (40-60 miles in the Spring-Fall 1.5 times a week; Spin 1+ hours 3 times a week in the Winter). My diet is very healthy. I make most of my meals at home. On a typical day, I eat a hard boiled egg and an orange for breakfast. I have hot organic apple cider with apple cider vinegar (a naturopathic treatment for hypothyroidism) in the morning. I'll have a cup of coffee or a cup of tea later in the day, maybe a second but not usually. I have a yogurt (Activia), usually as a mid-morning snack. Lunch is usually a vegetable - today I had 2 cups of cabbage sauteed in cajun seasoning and coconut oil (another naturopathic remedy for hypothyroidism). I have a piece of fruit in the afternoon, usually an apple. I keep nuts, dried fruit and lean beef jerkey in my cabinet in case I get hungry during the day. I usually do. Dinner is usually 4 oz of protein (fish, chicken or lean beef), at least 2 cups of vegetables, and some fruit for dessert. I cook all of my food in coconut oil. I make my own sugar-free dark chocolate with nuts or organic almond butter, and I'll have one of those for dessert. Some nights, I'll add a spoonful (or two) of almond or cashew butter. Sometimes I'll sneak in a cookie or some nuts. I'm not much of a drinker, maybe 2-3 glasses of wine or beers a week. I drink at least 56 oz of water a day, in addition to the coffee/tea, and what I drink when I work out. I recently lost about 10 lbs on the HCG diet - 10 lbs I'd been trying to lose for the last 10 years. I have a very difficult time maintaining my weight. I thought that the synthroid would solve that, but it hasn't. I don't understand why I'm constipated. The constipation seems to be worse now than ever before. I strain to go, and when I do, it's usually dense, dark, and very hard to pass. Once every three days can't be right. I used to be pretty regular (1x a day). I get a lot of fiber, I exercise, I drink a lot of water. I don't like resorting to the herbal laxative tea. The only other medication I'm on is a very low dose birth control pill, but I've been on oral contraceptives since I was 18, and on this particular one for 2 years. The rest of my medical history is pretty boring - I've had a few athletic injuries and appropriate surgeries, a concussion or two, and I have fibroids that the GYN keeps an eye on. Oh, and I tend to skip menstrual cycles. So what's with the constipation and slow metabolism?
I am 66, 5'2" and 155lbs. I developed a fib 2 years ago (now regulated) and was put on an older beta blocker plus I have high blood pressure for which I am now on the 5th different med ...I take 0.137 mg synthroid daily for 30 years, strength has varied over the years from 0.075 to as high as 0.2mg...my tsh, which is the only measurement my physician will consider, is usually 2.5 or thereabouts...in the last few months my hypothyroid symptoms have increased and on the last lab my tsh was very high, over 8 so I know my thyroid level is very low...I am very fatigued, depressed and most upsetting am eating less and getting fatter, where before I was overweight but firm and now I can feel fat in my thighs and upper arms plus around my abdomin which I never had before. Research shows the older type of beta blocker, atenolol, can slow metabolism and cause insulin resistance, (I am not diabetic) is it safe to simply stop one beta blocker and start another...in fact, I'd like to get off it altogether but the last time my physician said to just stop taking it, I developed pvc's which was corrected by increasing the atenolol. I am distressed about the side effects of this drug and wld like to take something less toxic.
I HAVE HAD HYPOTHYROIDISM FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER. I HAVE GONE TO MANY DIFFERENT DOCTORS AND ALL THEY DO IS GO BACK AND FORTH WITH THE DOSAGE OF SYNTHROID AND IN THE MEANTIME, I AM EXHAUSTED, MY JOINTS HURT, AT THE MOST RIDICULOUS TIMES-MY...
