I'm new to this forum, found it while searching symptoms. So these are mine: extreme fatigue, irritability, insomnia, headaches, memory lapses, colder than everyone around me, intermittent palpitations, low (no?) libido....:confused: Oh, I'm also pretty apathetic, but not depressed.
Been tested for thyroid and told it was normal.

Any suggestions, thoughts, or just a greeting will be appreciated. Thanks.

  • 1. Adrenal fatigue2. Thyroid - traditional TSH testing shows squat3. Pituitary malfunction - pituitary in many ways controls glands below it - thyroid, adrenal, ovaries4. Lyme can affect all of the above plus heart and nervous system Ever try any non-medical docs that are familiar with working with cases like yours ? DC or ND with training in how to handle such conditions ?Many people assume that DCs - Doctors of Chiropractic - are only trained and licensed in adjusting joints, but in many cases this is not true. Here in Ohio, I can deliver babies, do minor surgery, treat infertility and many more things.Point here is: if you want different results from your docs recommendations, how about starting with a doc that looks at things differently from the beginning ? Actually looks at the body as a number of things that work together, not just seperate parts ?

I'm open-minded enough to try alternatives. They did three (?) different thyroid tests, T3, T4, something something. Are there others? Thanks in advance!

Been tested for thyroid and told it was normal. Any suggestions, thoughts, or just a greeting will be appreciated. Thanks.Hey lady, I would just like to say that some of those sound like me. I seem to feel colder than everyone else around, I get Palpitations every now and then, low libido, Fatigued, I also get tightness in the chest and the back of my neck. When everything tightens I have shortness of breath, It all just happens at random, I won't even be thinkin of anything depressing or anything, I'm happy with my life. I'm just tired of all this discomfort.... , When I was watching the news yesterday this guy who had an operation due to a heart murmer described he was having these exact symptoms, that his murmer was causing his anxiety, almost as if his body was trying to warn him, so It got me thinking, maybe something is trying to warn me....
