I have not been feeling well for over a year. My doctor thought I was anemic, confirmed by blood tests. I took iron, and the ferritin level went up, but I still feel fatigued, and generally awful all the time. I have a full feeling on both sides of my neck, minor sore throat and headaches daily. I wake up feeling terrible, drag myself thru the day, and just want to do nothing. I also just found out I have a compex nodule on my thyroid that needs to have a fine needle aspiration. Bloodwork for thyroid is normal, normal for autoimmune, and normal for rheumatoid. I also have swollen joints, had a weird itchy rash for a few weeks this summer, and had ganglion cysts pop up on my wrists and arches of feet. Someone PLEASE help. I just want to know what this could be and start to feel better, or start some treatment.
