@pharmy:  I can’t really comment on what could be wrong with you, but try to not worry about things too much!

As for the bloodwork, remember not to hold your breath.  I got quite dizzy one of the last few times I had to go, as there was more than 1 vial and the person taking it was still being trained and she didn’t hold it as steady as they usually do so it was more painful.  Not bad enough that I should have gotten dizzy, but enough that I was holding my breath!

You can also usually request that they take it while you’re laying down.

It does sound a lot like a slow thyroid issue, that’s super common and hopefully that’s what it is because they’re very treatable.

@pharmy:  I’m so sorry you’re going through this dear. 🙁 I don’t have anything really help, except maybe sympathy. 

I guess I could say the first half of that sounds a LOT like when I had mono. It completely zapped my strength. I could barely stand, forget stairs. I slept all the time, my muscles ached, and it took me several months to recover. 

I hope you feel better soon… and the 17th is really not far away! Just a little over a week! I’m waiting on two doctor appointments now myself. An allergist at the end of this month, which, YAY, because I’ve had severe allergies my whole life and it will super to finally talk to an expert. 

And I’m getting screen for adult ADD at the beginning of November. I just feel kind of ‘meh’ about that one because my GP told me that adult ADD is treated with antidepressants, which I neither want nor need.

If anything gets worse, I would say to go to the ER instead of waiting for the doctors appt on the 17th – but its really not that long away.

If it is your thyroid, then let me tell you from experience that you’ll feel waaaaaaay better when it’s treated!  Remind yourself of that when you’re getting the blood test done.  It’s over in an instant.  Bring a soda or something with you and just ask to stay in the chair for a few extra minutes.  I’m sure those people have seen it all!

I’m so sorry you aren’t feeling well 🙁 try not to worry too much. When you have your blood drawn ask if you can lie down. Also, my dad who was a paramedic told me to tighten my abs when I’m getting my blood drawn to force the blood up to my head- apparently pilots do that to keep from passing out because of g- force when they are flying. Or he totally made all that up but it gave me something other than the blood draw to focus on. Either way it helps. You’ve done the right thing by making the appointment so try to think of other things until it gets here!  Fingers crossed that it turns out to be something minor.

Definitely sounds like it could be hypothyroid (then again, it could be other things as well…  IANAD!) If I were experiencing these symptoms, I would ask for a referral to an endocrinologist.
