I am 26 and I was diagnosed with CFS/M.E in 1998.
My symptoms include extreme fatigue, short term memory loss, sore throat, croaky throat, severe headaches, muscle and joint aches and pains, mood swings, PMS, spots, serious loss of labido and weight gain since 2003. I have put on nearly 3 stone since then! I was a size 8/10 3 years ago. I am constantly bloated, I eat a healthy diet and exercise regulary but the weight keeps piling on and I can't lose it!
I was sent to hospital with suspected meningitis following a bout of severe headaches, they now think it could possible be migraine.
I have no sex drive at all and havent had sex with my boyfriend for 10 weeks, I love him very much and want to be with him so I know its not because I have gone off him.
I have been to my GP who tried me on exclusion diets that didn't work, he changed my pill and has now prescribed me Reductil, an appetite suppressant - however i don't over eat!!!! I have had my throid checked 3 times but they have all come back clear!
I am at my wits end as noone is commiting to anthing or giving me any real answers!
I am not depressed and I enjoy life but I do get mood swings.
Do I have a throid problem????
Can anyone shed any light????
