I am a 24 y/o female with multiple symptoms. I will try my best to make this easy to read.
Symptoms began in 2004:
Extreme hair loss
Menstrual period for 6 months straight (no anemia though)
I seen a dr. for this who ran test on my thyroid, which came back fine, and I never went back to this dr. Symptoms gradually got better, but still tired. I didn't see another dr. until I got pregnant with my first son in 2006, normal obgyn visits. I noticed my hair didn't fall out as much during pregnancy, but as soon as I gave birth the symptoms listed above came back with the exception of the prolonged period and brittle nails. I got pregnant again and gave birth in 2007, and again in 2009...everytime it was the same. Only in 2009 after the birth of my 3rd child I developed more symptoms. One day after we left the hospital I had horrible wrist pain (diagnosed dequervain's tendonitis). One month after that I got a kidney infection that landed me in the hospital where I got a ct scan to confirm. It cleared and I never went back to have a checkup.
Dequervain's Tendonitis (10 months straight on both wrists)
Extreme hair loss
We moved late 2009 and I seen a different dr. about my current symptoms. She did a cbc and thyroid check but everything checked out fine. After months of pain I went back to see her again and she diagnosed me with anxiety, put me on anti-anxiety meds for one month and sent me on my way. I had never had a panic attack before, but those meds made me close to having one. Needless to say I finished my prescription and never went back to see her. In Feb. of 2010 I started with the nausea, vomitting, and diarrhea, headaches. I thought it would pass but after 3 months of bouts we moved back to our hometown and I saw the dr. who had done my ct. in 2009. After being diagnosed with anxiety from my previous dr. I thought it would be best to only tell this one about my nausea, vomiting and diarhea...so I did and she checked my gallbladder which was fine. Only after the abdominal ultrasound did I find out about the "spot" on my adrenal gland. This adenoma was discoverd in 2009 and was only 1.8 cm at that time. Last week after researching for myself I decided to bring this to her attention and she is going to be checking my thyroid again and running "some other tests" on Wednesday. If you have read all of this, do you have any advice for me? I am wondering if this adrenal adenoma could have been causing my hormonal symptoms? Also really curious about the nausea, it's getting pretty old after 6 months of it.
