Sheehan Syndrome? Thyroid?

Hello everyone - I am new here. I have had symptoms for some time, and I know I have to go in for more tests. But, I thought I'd ask if anyone had any ideas of what I could have. When my son was born 13 years ago, I had an inverted uterus (where my uterus was pulled out of my body). No one really told me much about it, at the time or since, although I have asked many times. I bled a lot, but did not receive a transfusion. I never produced breast milk at that time, even though I tried to breast feed for a time. I went on to have triplets (through fertility treatments) and never got breast milk at that time either. I spoke to my ob doctor about this, and he said it could be related to the thyroid. We did a test and it came back fine. I also have read it could have been caused by the hemmoraging, and have led to Sheehan Syndrome. Lately, I have been experiencing other symptoms that are bothering me. Various parts of my body go numb - my hands and upper arm when I sleep, my buttocks when I sit for a lot of the day at my desk, my feet tingle at times, and lately my lower face sometimes feels numb or prickly. For quite awhile I was seeing a chiro for carpal tunnel syndrome, but it didn't help my hands much, and then the other symptoms started showing up. Does anyone have any idea what this might be? Some of these symptoms also point to hypoparathyroidism.... could it be that?

I am very scared and have been avoiding going to the doctor.... but since the numb, prickly face symptoms showed up I know I have to. I'm just hoping someone can lead me in the right direction, as I have mentioned this to many doctors, and no one seems to be concerned about it.

Thanks so much!!!
