Suffering from unknown gyn. issues since July. Outside of that, my TSH (thyroid) levels are fluctuating (last one 3.88, before that 4.98). Otherwise, pretty healthy 44 yr. old.
Dec. 9th - felt like I had trouble concentrating (head felt heavy)
Then, headaches every few days (rare for me). Also, occasional esisode of dizziness.
Dec. 24th - bad headache all/day and night. (great Christmas Eve!)
After that, I pretty much became dizzy all the time. The dizziness is more of an unsteady thing, then a vertigo thing. Extra tired by nighttime.
Also, recently had a numbness/tingling in right arm for one day.
I don't feel entirely comfortable watching my 4 yr. old alone, until I get this solved.
MRI (with contrast as well) showed nothing.
Blood work was fine - except LDL was a little high & it said I was at increased risk for diabetes due to my 3 mth. something or another test - could read. The nurse said my sugar was fine - in the 80s.
Can anyone help? Don't know if I should see a nuero, endocrin., or internist at this point. Primary dr. no help.

  • I think a neurologist would be a good idea, especially given the tingly arm. If they keep coming up without a diagnosis then at that point you might consider migraine as a possibility. It could account for the tingling arm and the dizziness as well as the headaches. However, I'd think it would be episodic if it were migraine, whereas it sounds like yours is continual. So try the neurologist first!

  • I spoke too soon. Having looked into it more I agree with aquila (whose post I did not see until after I posted my own). Headaches, dizziness, and tingling can all be thyroid symptoms- see an endocrinologist!
