Female, 66yrs 5'9(175 lbs) hyperthyrd a yr ago. I complained to PCP of multi symptoms which do overlap with the dx of OA & fibromyalgia. Suffering ext. fatigue, pain in joints & muscles(somewhat controlled) , drenching seats, new symptom of bruising & blood pooling under skin. Had blood tests 8 days ago & was called right away by my Endo. to come in immediately obviously PCP not able to control my thyroid issues.
I've had 2 part. shoulder replmnts.(ball), total knee replmnt, for OA, cataract surgs., carpal tunnel & ulna nerve release, gall bladder, thyroid, bunion & a lipoma removed & suffered with GERD and ulcers. See PCP,ENDO & PAIN MGT Drs who aren't much help with my most annoying sympts of the fatigue, sweats & now big bruises & blood pooling from the least little bump PCP SAYS "old" skin.
