Comment from: Jojo, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: November 01

I have fibromyalgia but felt it was getting worse. Recently I have been having sweats, nausea, palpitations and worsening tremors. Very rarely I lose my appetite. I queried my symptoms with NHS, and next thing I was in hospital. ECG and blood tests were inconclusive and I was advised to go to my general physician. I did it as soon as possible, as it was weekend. I felt worse by the time surgery was open, they were thorough and did another ECG and blood tests. My blood tests came back negative for hyperthyroidism. I queried it, they checked and saw thyroid was 65.9.
