Feeling Unwell
Over the past few months I have been experiencing the following symptoms:
Random Nausea every other day , normally in the evening
Carpel tunnel syndrome or something similar, writs and hands stiff and sore
Painful joints on my hand
Extreme hair loss over the past 6 months
Irregular menstruation and spotting.
Cloudy mind,
Symptoms of a UTI or bladder infection, usually goes away after one day citric soda
My GP has put it all down to stress (my son has was diagnosed with a chronic illness early in the year and it’ s been roller coaster ride the entire year) I just can’ t shake the feeling there is something wrong with me.
