  • I just don't feel well and can't find out what is wrong. I have hypothyroidism, low testosterone (female), migraine, weakness, tired, rapid pulse, sometimes eye floaters, muscle cramps .... any suggestions?:eek:i had low testosterone and lots of ther problems too. i even had testosterone implants for 12 months. i felt unwell and bone felt sore too but nothing was ever diagnosed. i also had rapid pulse (tachycardia) and high bp. now docs are saying that there is no actual borderline for testosterone in a woman. i still feel drained now. i have researched this so many times. you are not alone. my testosterone was virtually undetectable. i am going to ask for my thyriod to be tested too as i get very cold and my temperature never really gets above 35.7. pretty low for anyone.

  • Shauna...Please check out this site a hummingbirdsguide.com migrane, weakness tired, rapid pulse are all sx of this disease. Please check it out. I'm starting to feel like a broken record because in the last 15 minutes on this site, I have written to 4 people already about this site. I believe there are several people in the US going undiagnosed or being wrongly diagnosed. If this fits you, print it out and take it to your Dr. If the Dr. doesn't believe you, keep going until you find one that does. Many people have been told it's all in there head (including myself) I have been a nurse for 15 years and I know the difference between something in my head and something wrong with my body. Best of luck and please let me know what you think of the site...mommy cat

  • I have all of these same problems too. Yesterday I got my blood work back, I was extremely low on vit. D, Doc says to take 5,000 IU per day. I also was diagnosed with an under active thyroid (although it was just barely below normal) I have been prescribed Armour thyro for that. I also have been prescribed testosterone cream, since that was really low too.Not sure if this is related but I have always had problems with insulin resistance. I am hypoglycemic. I read yesterday that this interferes with testosterone production. I don't eat tons of sugar, but I am going to try to put more protein in my diet. I am also going to start exercising 30 min. a day enough to get my heart rate up.About me I am 40 years old, struggling with no libido for 10 years, I'm not fat 5 9' 130 lbs.Signed hope it helps.
