Hi, Im new here

Postby jaythegeek » Fri Sep 07, 2012 12:51 am

Hi, just joined having realised I may have fibro. I am going to see my doctor soon but i have all the symptoms. Just looking for more info really and came across this forum. I am a 45 yr old transguy. In a civil partnership with my wife and we have 4 adorable cats. I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid in 2003. They caught it really late and so I am on the thyroxine for life.
I have those levels correct now and so cant understand why i still feel so crap. And i cant lose weight and i really need to for more reasons than health. I have tingling in my hands as i type. Plus a headache and restless legs, which i have suffered with more many many years now even before i was diagnosed with thyroid problems.
Other problems i have on a daily basis, aching muscles, sharp pains throughout my body, jaw ache, nausea, weakness, tiredness, i cant sleep at night, and usually catch up for a few hours kip in the afternoons. I hate bright lights, when in the car i am constantly squinting. I can only have lamp light in the house. I am sure there is more but my arms are aching so i gotta stop!!

:welcome: to the forum Jay :wave: :wave:

As Lisa has already said, it's not unusual for thyroid problems and FM to accompany each other :facepalm: :facepalm:

With you thinking that you may have FM, the first person you need to see is your GP. If you go armed with some info about FM, as well as details about your symptoms and how you are affected, hopefully it will start things off for you to find out what is the reason for your problems. This linky might be of help http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Fibromyalg ... tment.aspx

There is a lot of info and advice on here, so have a look and a read around, you may come across some ideas that could help you. Anything you want to know about, just ask and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

Hi there,

I also suffer from an under active thyroid and am taking thyroxine daily. it took me a long time to begin to start losing weight, but in the last few months I have finally lost 9kg just by cutting out the bad things I was eating. (mostly chocolate....I do love it a bit too much!)

I hope that you will get some help from your GP.

Ruru.
