Have I a hormone or thyroid problem.
I am a very complex person with a lot of especially psychatric problems. I was tested for thyroid function about 16 years ago and my tsh was a bit high but later tests proved normal. I have had weight issues but also know that I have overeaten and had no proper boundrys around food for a lot of my life. I was about 26 stone 10 years ago and with the help of overeaters anonymous lost about 12 stone and found a measured, balanced way to eat. I took up running which I love then about 18 months ago my running seemed to be getting more difficault and my times slower. I weighed a GPs and discovered that I was putting on weight. I put on a couple of stone over next couple of months and kicked up a fuss at GPs to have extensive blood tests. I was told they were all normal. I have since gained another couple of stone. I have had a very traumatic life, my mum died last year and this has triggered the reliving and trauma to surface. It has been a very distressing and traumatic year. I am not deppressed but had a chronic untreated deppression for thirty years. My hair has always been dry. I get hot when active but sometimes strip off when active outdoors but if I get cold find it impossible to warm up again. I used to sweat perfusely from my face when I was extremley over weight but this seems to have died off. I have lactated on and off through my adult life. I am currently frightened of doctors but have a good mental health GP. I don't know if I could cope with blood tests currently unless they were done in my home as I am frightened of equiptment in clinic rooms. Any thought from you lovely people.
