I'm a 21 yo female and I was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency and hypoglycemia at age 5. My endocrinologist said I was one of his worst cases he had ever seen in practice, in that my body produced basically no growth hormone. I took growth hormone shots from the time I was six until I was about 15. I was taken off of them because I had reached my full potential height of 5' 3". About three years later I realized that I just was not feeling right. I felt depressed, tired, and I started having recurring hypoglycemic episodes. I went back to my endocrinologist and they ran a fasting blood glucose test, where my blood sugar dropped down into the low 40's. He determined that I needed to be put back on my GH shots in order to maintain my blood sugar levels, and prevent fatigue which was being caused by my lack of growth hormone. They did and MRI to check for pituitary tumor before restarting my GH shots. Everything was clear and I started my shots back up at age 19, being told I would probably be on them for the rest of my life, every day. I work at a hospital and used to get my health insurance through them, and my shots were covered. The hospital changed inusurance companies back in May to another company and I was faced with having to get reapproved for my shots. Well I was extremely busy with college getting my BSN and working, and let my shots run out and never got reapproved for them. I have now been without my shots for about 8 months now. I was doing great for the first 5-6 months, with no problems. But in the past couple of months I started having the symptoms I developed the first time I ever went off my shots. I was tired, and my blood sugar kept dropping. With the new health care bill that passed this past year, I was able to get back on my original insurance with my mom as of October, and will be able to stay on it till I'm 26. I am now in the rigourous process of getting reapproved, and will have to most likely go through another fasting blood glucose test. I have an appointment with my endocrinologist on Jan 6th. Like I said I started experiencing similar symptoms to what I did the first time I went off of my shots, being tired, having low blood sugars, and feeling depresesed. None of which was that severe. Now to what is concerning. Here recently (the past month and a half) I have started experiencing symptoms I have never had before. I have started to feel extremely fatigued, beyond belief. It is nothing like I have ever experienced before. I can't make it through the day without sleeping. I was exhausted all day yesterday, had to take a nap around 2pm, then went to bed at 8 pm and slept for twelve hours, and I woke up feeling more tired than I was before I went to bed. It is all I can do to stay awake right now. This is a daily thing. Also, I am confused it feels like all the time. My thought processes are slow, and I find myself having to think of words, or think hard about what I am saying. I constantly forget why I am doing something, or what I was about to do. Its scary, because I have never felt like this before. I also feel dizzy and lightheaded, when my blood sugar levels are perfectly normal. I compare the feeling of my head to a balloon. I lose my balance quite often and feel like I can't walk straight. I feel like I could just drop to the floor at any minute. My vision has been changing, and the light hurts my eyes. It always feels like there is a fluorescent light shining in my eyes, and I'm squinting. I no longer feel comfortable driving at night, because I often see things that aren't there and all lights look like stars or halos. I have been waking up in the mornings drenched in sweat, my clothes wet. My palms get sweaty all the time. I can be freezing cold one second and burning up the next. Its rediculous. I also have no sex drive, when I used to have a great one. I got married about a year and a half ago and this issue has yet to resolve, and I have a great relationship with my husband. Also this past year I experienced my first ever panic attack. The weird thing was that I was on my way to go play soccer with my husband, something fun, and suddenly felt like I couldn't breathe. I started hyperventilating and wheezing and my husband took me back home. It got to the point where I was wheezing extremely loud and was nearly unresponsive, and my husband had to call 911 and I was transported to the ER via EMS with lights and sirens. They gave me a bag of saline and oxygen and I recovered in about two hours. I have no idea if this is related to anything else I have been experiencing, but I thought I should include it. I know I have growth hormone deficiency, and I have been off of my shots which could contribute to some of my problems. But I feel like something else is going on in addition to my GHD. I found this website while looking up my most recent symptoms, in hopes of maybe finding some answers or finding someone that is experiencing the same things. I am concerned with the way I have been feeling lately, and I don't want it to be overlooked by the doctors because I know more than anybody (because I work in healthcare) that often times when things are ignored, the results can be devastating or even tragic. Please help.
