This could get long, and I apologize but I will make it as short as possible.
First and foremost I have a multinodule goiter. They found this after after checking my TSH, deciding I had hypothyroidism, and then have my TSH drop into the hyperthyroid range after being on synthroid. I had heart palpitations, and irregular rhythm on synthroid so I was taken off of it. I never got rid of the heart issues. I was off of it for 4 months.
I have extreme fatigue as well, so my PCP decided it would be best to send me to an endocrinologist to get to the bottom of my issue. They did a bunch of tests, and said my cortisol and ACTH were slightly elevated but blew that off and said everything else was normal but my thyroid and decided to put me BACK on synthroid, knowing my past with it. I now am having serious heart issues, low blood pressure 92/78, and currently a weak, but rapid pulse.
I have irregular periods. I am almost always late, and not pregnant. I do have one child and have miscarried once back in May of 09. It is very easy for me to get pregnant so I am thinking of ruling out PCOS.
I cannot lose weight either. It's impossible. It doesn't matter what I do. I also have frequent urination. I did have a glucose tolerance test, but that supposedly came back normal as well.
I have severe insomnia. I can't fall asleep or stay asleep, and I can't seem to ever get enough sleep. I am ALWAYS exhausted. I have severely dry skin and a dry scalp as well.
Noone can seem to tell me what could be wrong and I am really sick of feeling this way. Any ideas?:confused:
