I am 21, female. I started having leg/hands/face swelling in Jan. of this yr. I let it go until March, thinking I was just gaining weight. I went from 118-128 in about 3wks. Finally I went to a Doctor who tested me for all kinds of things...lupus, Rhuematoid arthritis, sjogrins(which all runs in my family) and found all tests to be negative. I had been tested for thyroid 3 wks ago with a different doctor and my TSH level was 5.22. At that time I weighed 128lbs. I was just tested a few days ago and weighed 134lbs. My new tests came back with a TSH level of 6.33 but my T4 level was normal at 0.9. The doctor claims I have hypothyroidism even though the ONLY symptom I have is edema. Does this sound normal to anyone, or do I need a second opinion.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
