As everybody says, best get tests done & find out, anyway! Best wishes with all that.

I rarely drink coffee and I have one cup of tea a day. The only drink I drink is water or sometimes elderflower, orange juice, milk.

The best thing to do is wait for the doctor to advise you you could keep a measure of how much liquid you take that may give the doctor a bit more detail to go on when you have your apointment.

Hi Liz

 

It is never ever stupid to google symptoms if you have felt extremely weary for months etc;. I've been in a; similarish predicament the last few months myself. I was tested at the GP and everything was fine but then the other week I almost collapsed, rung for an ambulance and woke up in hospital 2 days later and spent a further 3 days there and am now recovering. In my case its not diabetes and just too much water and energy drinks. OK so I'm twice your age, but the point I'm trying to make is that you should always err on the side of caution as I would not like to see anyone else go through what I did.

That must have been an awful thing to go through - I didn't know energy drinks could make you ill! Hope you're okay now.

Thanks Nesf. It was awful. I couldn't remember getting there apart from entering the ambulance and was very confused. What made it more confusing is that I was being told it was the 40th birthday of my cousin who is just 6 weeks older than me and I never knew it was that late in April, although thats only because I hadn't thought about the date before I went in so totally lost track. I gradually realised it wasn't all some big dream. Each day since getting out I've got about 10% better and I'm confident that I'll be ready for work on 15th May, though it might be shorter hours at first.

I had no idea that those drinks could cause that you would have thought there would have been warnings on how much you can drink. They should have known the effect their drink has on people if they drink too much its quite alarming really.

I've had similar issues in the past, but I've always had dry skin so I didn't consider it a symptom at the time. But anyway, they did all kinds of blood tests (only time I managed to have a blood test) and other samples etc and found nothing. I was relieved and disappointed because of course, I was still having the problems, and I still do to an extent. I had to really try hard to change my routine and eating habits etc so that I started to feel better. I think stress causes me to feel a lot worse.

Yes, stress can make any symptoms worse and weaken the immune system. I went through a period of feeling tired and low in energy, as well as getting horrible cramps in my legs and feet, so I took some vitamin supplements and try to eat non-meat things containing iron and now I feel better.
