Over the past year I have had some unexplained things happen to me that my doctors still can't put a name to. I have gained about 50-60lb(with no change in my diet or exercise). I have extreme fatigue where I can hardly stay awake long enough to work or play with my children. One second I'm burning up and the next minute I have chills. I have achy joints, trouble swallowing, severe headaches, and terrible mood swings. And to top all that off I have lost over 50% of the hair on my head down to my smooth scalp. I was told it might be my thyroid but I had my thyroid tested and it has come back normal. Can someone please offer any suggestions?

  • get to a rhuematologist - sounds like could be fibromyalgia or some other autoimmune issue, which also can attack thyroid
