I just signed on to this forum and it has made me think about my health history. I can remember waking up during the middle of the night for hours since age of 5. I have my whole life been extremely skinny. Literally my whole life I have been a double zero. I never thought anything of it. I thought it was just the way I was. I'd eat large pizza's in one sitting on my own. I'd go to Burger King and get a Whopper and a large fry then on to taco bell and I'd get a beefy burrito and a taco salad with chips then on to McDonalds. I never gained weight. Within 3 weeks of me having both my children who were exactly two years apart and I breast fed, but I ate huge amounts of healthy foods and chips, and within 3 weeks I weighed 93lbs again. I thought it was normal for me. However I couldn't keep my breast milk in. My whole life some mornings I would wake up feeling dizzy and drugged. By the time I was 32 I also went to a sleep clinic exhausted. I was diagnosed with anxiety. I still after 13 years of trazadone and Paxil at times wake up with this deep fatigue. Over ten years ago my hair started falling out and it is down to maybe 1/3 the amount and I break out in weird rashes on the back of my head. I have chronic folliculitis (which I have never felt it was folliculitis cuz it looks like acne and I treat it like acne and itgoes down to minimal) on top of weird acne. I have been for years getting things treated individually. I found out my sister who was always over weight is extremely skinny now. She has never been skinny (I love her anyway)but I gained. I think I may have some kind of thyroid or hormonal thing on top of hormonal woman stuff. . My symptoms in all categories have gotten worse. My point is you have made me think about all these years of me getting the wrong treatment because of lack of education. I went to the E.R. tonight and I have for weeks had a pain in my side like for inches long vertically. I was out of there in 3 minutes. Thank you for bringing something else to light. I hope you fins your answers and feel better soon.
