New Football Game announced: Football Frenzy 2012: European Edition

It is rumoured that an exceptional football game is about to hit the Apple iPad market. It is said that its a five-aside football game based on the Euros. Its a great idea so you can control your team and promote them through the ranks to make your team/country champions.

I have found the company who have made the game and they have confirmed that it has been pushed to apple, and is currently pending review.

The name of this fantastic looking game is Football Frenzy: European Edition. Hopefully they will also release premier league versions and maybe even an Olympics version as football is also included in the Olympics too.

Doctor Trip: Dislocated back, torn tendons, tooth abcess.

I went to the doctor on Monday its been 7 months since I last went and my doctor was very supportive still and worried about what I have been through. I told him the truth regarding how many miscarriages I have had in 15 months which now totals 7, trying for our first child.

Due to this extreme case of recurrent miscarriage has has sent a letter to my local hospital where I went for tests to refer  me to a specialist in Liverpool who looks into recurrent miscarriages. I should hear back with an appointment within the next 2 weeks hopefully regarding this.

I also mentioned to my doctor that I have had some severe back pain for a week after it made a "popping" sound. Turns out I dislocated one of my rotation joints in my back and torn the tendons when it popped back into place a couple days later. I can deal with the back pain, its no where as bad as my constant ME/CFS pain that I live with on a daily basis so rest has been prescribed for my back.

Additionally I have an access on my tooth root which he has given me very strong antibiotics which I have to take 3 a day for 5 days to hopefully sort it out.

So I'm trying to chill out a bit now and relax to give my back some time to sort itself out.

Quest for a diagnosis: possible under active thyroid

I have been diagnosed with M.E/CFS, however I am not convinced that this is the condition that I have, since this diagnosis is given when your GP has no clue after a standard blood test. However as I also have problems with re-currant / multiple miscarriages (7 in 15 months trying for our first) I am not convinced fully that it is M.E/CFS that I have, even though my father has also been diagnosed with the condition (but its not hereditary apparently and does not cause miscarriage let alone re-currant).

  • Basically I have the following medical problems:
  • Chronic Tiredness
  • Agonising contant muscle pain
  • Excess cartilage being produced in random places
  • Recurrent miscarriage (7 in 15 months)
  • Severe skin discolouration (goes from blotchy, to purple and black)
  • Heart palpitations daily
  • Dry/brittle hair
  • Minor hair loss around my ears
  • Blurry vision
  • Migraines with partial sight loss
  • Migraine paralysis (parts of my face go numb)
  • Cannot gain weight (i have been 6 stone for 9 years) no matter what i eat.

I have recently heard about under-active thyroid also known commonly as hypothyroidism which can cause many of the problems that I suffer with on a daily basis. So i have ordered online a home thyroid test kit which will test my blood for under active thyroid.

I am hoping that this will give me some answers, and hopefully if this is the case then maybe I wont have to live in constant agony (27 years has been enough) and maybe I might be able to have children and a family of my own - just like normal people.

Where to buy a Home Thyroid test for under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism)

I bought mine from for £8 delivered.
You can buy yours from amazon too from amazon. - this is the one I bought however I was unable to collect enough blood specimen for it to work (i heal quickly).

What happened next? 19th June 2012

As I was unable to collect enough blood for the home test I could not do the test myself. However on Monday I went to the doctor and asked him to check my records to see if I had recently had a thyroid test, as I have had 8 vials of blood taken for testing. Apparently one of those tests was for thyroid and it came back normal so I do not have a Thyroid problem, even though my symptoms are very similar.

Then what? 30th August 2012

After being referred to a specialist, they informed me that general hospital results that come back "normal" will often come back when done by a specialist as "not normal" so basically I have had another 6 vial of bloods taken, this time they are going to do a "full spectrum thyroid test" so they have not ruled out I do have a thyroid problem. I will hear back from the hospital on the 15th October 2012.
