I am new and this is my first post. I started seeing a new doctor back in March and I went for a physical - hadn't had one since I played sports ages ago. When my blood tests came back she started going over them with me and said B12 was good, this was fine, that was fine, then she said, "Well, I don't want to say you're anemic, but..." then she flipped the page of results and said, "Oh well, none of that matters because you're hypothyroid." She explained it to me, and I was rather excited to find out just what was going on with me and had great hopes that the medication would make me feel like a million bucks.
After the first week and a half I felt good - I didn't expect it to work so quickly, but I definitely had more energy, fewer headaches, etc. Then I slowly started to feel like my old self again. I'll cut this short with a list of symptoms:
Migraines (maybe not a symptom, but I've had them forever)
Constant fever of around 99.2 - 99-7, for months (occasionally goes down to normal temp., but my "normal" since childhood was always low, so even a low-grade temp. worries me)
Small random bruises on lower legs
Insomnia (my whole life)
I also have low WBC - not terribly low, but low enough that the Dr. is referring me to a hematologist just to be safe.
Any ideas? Seems like everything points to major diseases but I am hopeful that maybe I've just slid from hypothyroid to hyperthyroid... My TSH went way down in a matter of 6 weeks on Synthroid. Thanks!
