Can't take this...UPDATED with partial results

For the past week, EVERYTHING hurts. My thighs, my calves, my hips, my ribs, my back, my fingers and of course my never-ending headaches. Even my right boob hurts.

I am soooo unbelievably tired & am having a hard time functioning.

Called my doc yesterday who sent me in for blood work & I should hear something next week, but until then I'm miserable.

No point to this post, really but just whining.

---------

Update 5/30:

So, my doctor has SOME of the results back.  The rest I have to call for (again) next week.  For what they DO have back - it's my thyroid.

Normal range is 0.47-4.68.  My result is 7.40.

I'm not surprised.  I've been battling underactive thyroid since my mid 20's (I'm 41 now).  When my DH was laid off a few years ago, money was REALLY tight, so when my meds ran out, I didn't get more.  I was tested a few times since and it was always fine, so I foolishly thought those meds weren't REALLY necessary.

So...I was wrong.

I need to go see the endocrinologist since it's been so long since I've been on meds - and I'll probably get reprimanded.  Woohoo.

But, at least it explains the extreme fatigue, inability to lose weight no matter WHAT I do, and maybe the aches and pains.

We'll see if anything else turns up with next week's results.

Except that I'm not nauseous (sp?), I have no fever, no stuffy head, nothing like that.

Sorry to hear that.  I hope you can get it figured out.  Life is hard enough being a working mom, dont need to throw in health problems on top of it.
