I am overweight, I know this probably like lots I have yoyo dieted for years, this at the moment is not the issue.
For the last few years I have become increasingly tired feel ill all the time and in pain all over, this is just a summary of how I feel.
I went to my GP a few weeks ago and explained how I was feeling, can't really do much in 10 minutes but I did my best.
Was told every thing could be explained by depression, which I know I am due to family problems at the moment. I have already completed a course of CBT therapy which didn't help. I was on sertraline but came off it because it made the tiredness worse.
The GP ordered blood tests,which I went for the results this morning all normal,except Thyroid function which is borderline, but no medication needed at the moment, it will be retested in 6 months.
Then he went on to say you are a little overweight, I think he was being polite, this could explain a lot of your symptoms as well, lose at least a stone and come back then if you are still feeling unwell.
Does being overweight make people feel unwell, does it make you not to be able to wear a bra because were the straps go feels like it's badly bruised, or my make me feel that my heck can not hold my head because of the pain in my shoulders, I feel the same as well in other areas or like I have cotton wool in my head and constantly feel like I have a cold, and just feel generally lethargic all the time.
It certainly would take more than a 10 minute consultation to tell him all my symptoms.
The thing is this has been steadily getting worse for about 5 years, my last GP told me basically the same thing about it being depression I certainly was not depressed 5 years ago overweight yes but not depressed.
I take paracetamol for the pain but felt I needed something a little stronger he suggested solpadol has any one tried this is it effective?
Sorry for the long post just needed to get it out.
Feeling a little sorry for myself at the moment.
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
