Hi there
I am 43 years old, and have several symptoms for which I do not know, if they are connected or not. So, here goes...
Hope you like a challenge. 1st concern...

My ability to concentrate, and to learn has always been challenging-however-in the past 3 years my memory has decreased at an alarming rate, I am also terribly forgetful, and it is affecting my daily dealings. This is a concern, my doctor puts down to age, but I honestly can't remember one day to the next, names, dates, details. :rolleyes:

2nd Concern.
Recently, I have started sweating, and have underarm odour. I get dizzy spells, my periods are much heavier and suddenly feel drowsy, I am also gaining weight, and urinate more often. My hair has thinned considerably, and I have facial spells of ezema by my mouth??

3rd Concern-after damaging two discs in my lower back last year, I am now left with right side involuntary twitching. It is only occasional however.

All symtoms are not awful, but are concerning me, and I have looked at symptom checker but am now confused? do I have Aarskog syndrome, type 2 diabetes, hypo thyriod, hypnoglycemia, amino acid metabolism disorder, menopause??? absolutely no idea. Please help

Hope you good and wise people can help out there. By the way, my mother has hypnolipidemia, and type 2 diabetes, and glucoma. However, apparently my blood cholesterol level is 5.4 which is acceptable.

  • Hi- I am a 55 year old female and recognize some of your symptoms. You are probably peri-menipausal- which may last for years- that could account for the forgetfulness and sweating and heavier periods. However I would absolutley have your thyroid checked- you sound possibly like you have hypo-thryoidism ( slow thyroid) very common in your mid forties. Easily corrected with medicine. Hope this helps :)
