I am a 21 year old female, but I feel soo much older.
I have been experiencing a variety of symptoms including:
-Sore throat from 12/06-2/07 which went from a regular sore throat to a one-sided sore throat/sore neck kind of thing
-Lump in throat feeling starting 3/12/07 and still going
-Muscle cramps in legs
-Fluid retention/Pitting edema in legs
-Weight gain 15lbs since about 9/06 without change in diet or activity
-Headaches daily on the right side of my head and into my right eye starting 3/14/07
-Intermittent joint and muscle pain
-Weakness and shortness of breath after normal activity
There are probably more that I am forgetting
I have had my thyroid tested
TSH 3.49 (.4-5.5 range)
Free T4 (.8-1.8 range)
2 nodules, one in each lobe, likely colloid cysts (each 3mmx2mm)
