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?

  • Have you looked at parathyroid.com website? It seems to fit some of your symptoms. If that's not a fit, have you read "Hypothyroidism: the Unsuspected Illness" by Dr. Broda Barnes. It is only found easily through inter-library loan but it is worth the search. Not new but very valuable. :) Hope you get help here. I like Armour thyroid best. Just feel better on it. Iodine seems to help too. It is called Iodoral.

  • This sounds like a pituitary disorder (can affect many systems). See an endocrinologist who treats pituitary diseases and rule out Acromegaly.

  • I sounds like hypothyroid disease. I went to 5 different endo's in 5 years before I was diagnosed. Make sure the drs test your TSH, t4, t3 and t7. Also you could have a low normal or high normal reading and the drs will say it's normal, but it may not be normal for you. When ever you get and lab work done get a copy of the results and research it. You must adovcate for your health because you are just a $ to the doctors. If you have any medical schools around you to to get and appointment there. I ended up and John Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Md. and finally I was diagnosed in 2003. My thyroid is now under control, but unforunatly hypothyroid is a autoimmune disease (AD)and AD tend to custer with other AD's. Hope you find help.
