Hello doctor,

I have been getting bad migraines for a while now, where my head feels like pounding, and I feel very dizzy and faint. I also feel tired of body pain and nausea every time I eat something. I also get kidney pains such as cramps and on and off stitch feeling for months now. I am not currently on any medication, but I was on tablets for depression a little ago, but I stopped taking them as I did not find they helped. Is this normal?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Before proceeding to the discussion, did your doctor tell you that you are having a migraine or assumed yourself? Are you putting on weight?

Your overall signs and symptoms of body aches, fatigue, depression, and temperature sensitivity suggest the likely diagnosis of hypothyroidism. It happens when our body's thyroid gland does not produce an adequate quantity of thyroid hormones to meet body metabolic demands. To reach a definitive diagnosis, we need thyroid function tests TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), FT4, and FT3.

Once we confirm the diagnosis and start you on Thyroxine (hormone replacement) treatment, you will feel a remarkable improvement in your symptoms.

Meanwhile, to relieve symptoms temporarily, you can start tablet Motilium 10 mg thrice daily. Drink plenty of water up to 10-12 glasses a day. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
