Cold hands and feet ,hot flashes ,and shivering ,sweating ,IBS on and off . Sometimes I say words the wrong way round and stutter . I had a dreadful stammer as a child but have seem too if grown out if it ,unless I'm very tired or very stressed .
I had two children ,14 months apart ,one was six weeks prem the other full term ,both labours had to be artificially started ,even after my waters had broken . A lot of my symptoms started a couple of years after having my children also my father passed away at this time . My marriage was not a happy one ,financial issues and controlling . I am now recently divorced .
I have been tested for diabetes ,Ms ,RA ,anemia all which were negative .
I bruise very easily and they can take ages to disappear .
Sometimes I get small patches of dry skin in my ears and at the back of my hair line and the inside of my ears get itchy ,I also have ridged nails ,but they are not brittle or flakey .
At this moment I time I carnt think of anything else ,my GP says all my results say I'm A1 fitness ,this could not be any further from the truth . Thanks
