Hi I am a 25 year old male and have been struggling with multiple symptoms for some years now, my main symptoms are very similar to that of hypothyroidism, they are:
-Intense fatigue and exaustion/feeling run down, sluggish and drowsy/general feeling of being unwell.
-nausea (numerous times daily)
-foggy and slowed mental activity (like white noise in my brain) also short term memory difficulties
-low moods/lack of motivation/occasional depression
-voice has become horse and deeper than usual
-very loose stools (pale in color)
-cold sensitivity, coldness in extremities (fingers and toes turn purple and white and have no circulation) low basal body temp upon waking (average of 1 degree below normal).
My doc thinks im depressed but I know im not and dont believe this for one second (I think that depression is dangerously overdiagnoised). The reason why I dont thnk im depressed is I dont feel sad about anything other than my continuing symptoms I love life and am very outgoing so please dont waste your time mentioning depression. Only family history is my mom, she was hospitalized for servere iron anemia about 3 years ago (my iron count is ok). She was very sick and was also treated for Vitamin D deficiency which she is continues medication today. I was driving around in a moldy car for around 4 years (was leaking water inside) have rid myself of the car for approx 6 months now and I am taking antifungal supplements and medication.
As mentioned above my symptoms are exactly the same as hypothyroidism, so obviously I had this tested first. My TSH keeps on coming back within the normal range (not really even boarderline). I have had T3 T4 and thyroid antibodies checked too, all test negative for thyroid condition. B12 was unusually high 1143pmol/L (normal range=170-600) Doctor said is nothing worry about. Glucose was normal (negative for hypoglycemia). Tested negative for both Lyme disease and Celiac. Cortisol levels seem to be within normal ranges (synacthen test) although I havn't done an AM-PM cortisol test. The only tests which came out abnormal showed I had low Vitamin D, low DHEA hormone, slightly elevated liver enzymes and was shown to have neutropenia (underfunctioning immune system).
As you can see what I am going through is very frustrating as I cant find the cause for my symptoms please if you have any suggestions at all please dont hesitate to post. I just want to get on with my life and treat this condition. If you have any suggestions on what it could be or what I need to get tested please comment, im open on hearing anything at all. Thank you and god bless.
