I am a 20 year old male. I have been having chronic health problems this past year main problems include chronic fatigue, muscle weakness/loss, poor memory/difficulty thinking and concentrating, reduction in my sensation of touch, freezing cold hands, sleeping 10 hours usually and constipation alternating with diarrhoea.
I have hashimoto's thyroidits (autoimmune hypothyroidism), low testosterone, DHEA's low and IGF-1/GH is also low.
I recently had severe mental symptoms feeling really unwell mentally, even worse muscle weakness in the forearms and quads and tingling of the head and back of the spine. I started taking 50mcg of T4 couple of days ago and i feel much better. I Though i had a TIA or stroke but it wasn't.
I think i was experiencing hypothyroid related neuropathy and now this is improving with T4 replacement.
I would just like someone to give me more info on my CT Brain Scan:
I did a Non-contrast CT Brain scan.
Findings: The pineal gland is midline in position. The ventricles are of normal dimensions and are arranged symmetrically about the midline. There is normal differentiation between grey-white matter.
There is a abnormal widening of the sulci in both parietal lobes at the vertex.
No obvious intracerebral space occupying lesion is demonstrated. A small sized pituitary gland is present. No abnormality is seen in the brain stem. The cerebellum appears normal.
No obvious abnormality detected in the region of the periventricular white matter.
* Cortical atrophic changes in both parietal lobes at the vertex, abnormal for the patient's young age.
* No space occupying lesion
Could this be caused by longstanding untreated severe hypothyroidism as well as low testosterone and low IGF-1/GH levels?
Any information is appreciated. The last few days i noticed the tingling in the back of my head started and this was shown in my results of the brain scan.
