:confused: ok, so here's the deal...

since I've had my son (he's 7 months now) I have been very ill.
they found that I am hypothyroid but I have a question about symptoms.

are these all symptoms of hypothyroid or should I keep pushing my doctors to see if something else is wrong?

here they are:

1. extremely weak
2. swollen lymph nodes in neck, back of head and now on my chest.
3. shortness of breath upon minimal exertion
4. joint stiffness swelling and pain.
5. numbness of arms.
6. heart palpitations
7. extremely high blood pressure.
8. body aches.

I know some of them can be hypo I just wanted to know if anyone else feels this way. I feel sooo horrible. My body feels like a crumpled peice of paper. It's getting so hard to live like this every day.

I am on levoxly now. no improvment yet. I am also on hyzaar for the hypertension. I've had x-rays, breathing tests, exerscise test, blood work, ct-scans, and none of these doctors have been able to tell me anything.

I did have a postive ANA and RA last time and the endo found a very small nodule on my thyroid., but when I saw a rheumatologist he seemed skeptical that there was anything but my thyroid wrong.

Does being hypo ever get any better? I can't do this anymore...I feel so helpless and hopeless right now. I probably would be depressed if it were'nt for the joy my little boy brings me. anyway,

Is this all hypo or is something else wrong too?
