I have heart arrhythmias, tachycardias, irregular beats, palpitations, shortness of breath with any exertion (like 3 stair steps, or standing up more than 15 - 30 minutes), headaches, dizziness, waves of extreme exhaustion, muscle weakness, tremors in my left hand, multiple and constant joint and muscle pains, poor sleep, anxiety, feel cold all the time, many dental problems, sinus pain, OB/GYN wants to do a D&C to check for uterine cancer, painful sinuses, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, MVP, constant thirst, blood draw technicians complain that I must be dehydrated, but I drink plenty of water. I have low vitamin D levels.

The extreme fatigue and weakness is my most pressing problem at the moment. I can hardly get out of bed for long and can't function.
Thanks

Come over to the forum and find out how to test that hypothesis so that you will know very quickly if that is the case and correct it. Your symptoms would be recognized by many there. Check out our list of symptoms.

  • Have your thyroid checked. Simple blood test should do it.

  • When I was first diagnosed with Hasimotos I was so sick with all the symptoms that you listed except I had one other, I had been literally bleeding (having a period varying from light to extreme heavy) for 9 months straight so I was also anemiac. Luckily the OBGyn at the ER that day was experienced with extreme cases of Hashimotos and started treatment right away. I had went to the ER mostly for the fatigue, cold, and irregular heart beats; but the doctor was my hero and after several adjustments of my synthroid levels (currently taking .125mg) I have my life back to some degree. I say this because I have many other autoimmune diseases and struggle with health problems related to them also. If you would like to talk my email is: oktrinket64@yahoo.com Good Luck and God Bless

  • Info: Age, supplements and medications you take, life long or previous illnesses, etc.For now make sure you are getting enough good food and moving around regularly (sounds like you may even benefit from some physical therapy).
