Hello, everyone! I am new here and glad to have an opportunity to share concerns.
Over the last three months, I have been very fatigued, and suffering terrible muscle and joint pain. It is most uncomfortable when I get up after sitting for a few minutes.
My thyroid has several small nodules, too small to biopsy, and my Doc said the thyroid looked like thyroiditis on the scan, but my thyroid function tests are normal and no thyroid antibodies. However, my thyroglobulin level is elevated, and I have many of the classic symptoms for hypothyroidism.
Additionally, my DHEA level is elevated, but nothing else. My Doc is working me up for adrenal problems, but I don't have any elevated cortisol or ACTH. All my other blood tests were WNL.
I've gotta get my energy back! I'm only 45 and feel like an elderly person. Any ideas as to what may be going on and what I might do next?
Thanks, in advance...
