I have been dealing with severe fatigue, muscle tension, burning under the skin for 8 + months now?
I have been dealing with severe fatigue, muscle tension, burning under the skin for 8 + months now. I also had a little bit of neuropathy in both my feet and legs, but I’ve managed to calm that down with lots of stretching.
I have been tested for thyroid imbalance (my levels are fine and I’m on Synthroid for hypothyroidism), Lupus, Lymes, Hep C, Vitamin Deficiencies, and Diabetes. All came back negative/fine. I’m a 47 year old woman — and don’t know what to do next: the only thing I have been prescribed for all of this has been antidepressants–and I can’t take them/don’t feel they are the solution. Who is the next doctor to see about this? Could it be adrenal fatigue — as I don’t handle stress particularly well; maybe I crashed my system? Could it be all premenopausal?
Any advice would be appreciated.
I would exclude the possibility of adrenal problem now ,while , I think it is caused by hypothyroidism and neuropathy..
I recommend checking for calcium deficiency too..
Thanks for the query..
Your symptoms are probably due to Neuropathy only..
Consult a Neurophysiology and get evaluated..
A thorough clinical examination and investigation like blood test the MRI scan can be done..
For now take a Nutritious diet, start multivitamins and sufficient rest..
Do moderate workout and meditation to reduce stress..
I agree.. I would suggest a Vitamin B12, calcium, potassium levels also to be investigated..
