I am jessy... I am from Newcastle, NSW Australia and now live in chicago america....
I am currently being tested for hypothyroidism and cushings... but lets start from the beginning
I have always been a big girl, in 2008 is when i started gaining lots of weight.... i have gained about 60 lbs in the past 3 years
2002-2008 insomnia, pain in left thigh losing muscle mass, injury with ankle and cracking bones and joint pain... recurring boils on inner thigh
2008- 2010 i start with swelling of the legs... just thought it was fluid rentention and problems with my past injury when i dislocated it in 2002
I have pain in my left thigh where i have lost muscle mass and it stings to the touch and feels numb and painful at the same time... i know weird description but its the best i can say... it really hurts and stings but also feels tingly. more fatigue..
I go to hospital for not feeling good and having suicidal thoughts and have hurt myself.. diagnosed with major depression
I have more pain in my ankles and legs and now swelling periodically... it hurts to walk more than 1/4 mile at this point.
continuation with migraine meds, depression meds,sleeping meds, athsma meds... i start to get migranes and joint pain in my hands and legs. also infertility
2011 I finally fall pregnant and 6 weeks in i misscarry the baby... a month after that i get pnemonia, i get diagnosed with sleep apnea (i learn that my lungs only get 40% oxygen when i am sleeping) i am feeling more fatigue more than ever where i just want to sleep all day and my body feels so heavy... my arms feel heavy and my shoulders ache... i get carpltunnel in my right wrist and pain in my hands. then it also goes to my left.. My eyes are always stingy and watering...
swelling in the hands and wrists as well as legs and ankles are almost every day now.... abdominal pressure like bloating always happens and i hardly eat... I have boils under my arms and thighs all the time now. I was making the bed last week and i ended up crying in pain because my back hurt so much.
My mum from australia and my mother in law from the USA notice how i am feeling and suggest i see a specialist and go against my GP to get my thyroid/metabolism/fertility
I am sick of feeling sick and sick of being told there is nothing wrong with me cause i feel horrible all the time.
