All of my symptoms point to a thyroid condition (hypo) or (hyper). I have not found anything that as closely matches my symptoms as hypothyroid.
I was tested twice exactly a month apart and my tests came back normal. I am not sure what to do. I have been doing so much research and cant find anything else to explain my symptoms.
weight gain
irregular periods now I have no periods
ringing in my ears
premutar gray hair
irregular heart beat
hair loss
cold intolerance
my hands and feet swell
I cant find anything else that explains ALL of my symptoms that I have been experiencing. I don't know why my tests came back normal. Is it possible i could still have a thyroid issue? is there something else that i am missing?

  • What tests have you had performed? Have you had your adrenals checked?

  • You posted this a while ago, so I don't know if you're still following responses or not, but here's some things you may want to consider getting checked for:thyroid antibodies (thyroglobulin and thyroperoxidase, also TSH stimulating and inhibiting)thyroid ultrasoundI had thyroid symptoms for years, was reassured my gland was "okay" because my hormones were okay, but eventually got diagnosed with hashimoto's thyroiditis (by way of a rare encephalopathy associated with it) by elevated antibodies...I am thorougly convinced that you cna have symptoms even if the hormones are "okay"

  • Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormones. People with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism. 10% of women may have some degree of thyroid hormone deficiency. So you have been useful in correcting an underactive or low thyroid, such as acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, naturopathic medicine, homeopathic medicine, biofeedback, and osteopathy.Regards:Hank Freid
