I gave up work as a support assistant to a 10 yr old with behavioural problems, due to stress of job seemed to be causing various health problems. I've had stomach problems/digestive from Feb to May this year where I seemed to get diarrhoea and/or constipation, and finally worked out that it possibly a lactose intolerance? as when i gave up milk the symptoms almost stopped. Most likely thing so far suggested by GP is simply IBS. In the past few months I've also found that, following blood tests recently, there seems to be inconclusive evidence in terms of my throid gland - test for one gland normal but not normal for other one! due to go for more blood tests in couple of weeks to find out whats going on. Not only this, but twice a couple months I've gone through the most horrendous tooth pain ever and had no choice but to attend A&E twice, and given morphine first time it was so bad, then strong painkillers prescribed, then later on had wisdom tooth extracted. Pain seemed to subside apart from odd twinge, but most odd thing of all is that 6 days ago I have developed numbness on right part of chin! this has been permanent since it happened, but no symptoms related to that. Am still to ring dentist, which hoping to tomorrow, but v confused about all these symptoms and dunno if any/all of them would be related? Any ideas please? Thanks

ps. I also have PCOS!
