After several years and several doctors, I am running out of ideas. So here I am! I have already been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and am currently being treated with Armour Thyroid. All of my blood work comes back normal, but here are my symptoms:
Difficulty swallowing food (feels like the food gets stuck 1/2 down throat)
Pain in hip joints
Pain in finger joints
Occasional purpura (flat purple spot) located between my nose and upper lip. When this occurs, I have a flare up of tight skin on my upper arms that becomes very dry and itchy. Occasional granule-like things under the skin in the same area of my arms. Once I had it biopsied and was told it was "nothing".
No tolerance to exercise.
Again, all of my blood work comes back just fine so I guess I'm supposed to be fine.:confused:
I've been tested for lupus, RA, scleroderma and all the other usual suspects. Nothing. So if anyone out there has any thoughts, I would really appreciate your help. I'm super tired physically and super tired of doctors looking at me like I'm nuts...thanks! Kathy
