My grandfather and my mother have thyroid disorders. I don't know which ones, but I get many health issues from my mother. I have symptoms of both hypo and hyper thyroidism. Confused.
-I either gain a lot of weight or lose a lot of weight (Right now I am the heaviest I've ever been and I don't know why)
-I have ringing in the ears (about once a week)
-I have irregular menstural cycles (started menstrating 4 years ago)
-I have phases of depression or mania which are unexplainable and uncontrollable (not seasonal changes or giant life transitions)
-my hands and sometimes feet are always really cold
-my hair is brittle and I lose a lot of it everyday
-lately I've been very hot, sweaty, and I am unable to sleep
-I have phases of being very full of energy or unable to leave my house
-my eyes are very sensitive to light
-my fingernails are always blue
Arg. My symptoms change a lot...these are basically it, and it's annoying because I feel as if something (thyroid?) is either producing too much or too little...it doesn't make sense how it could flip-flop between the two and I haven't found any answers.
I tried getting blood work done; it was abnormal. 2 weeks later they tried again; normal. So they can't catch whatever it is. I just want to know if there is anything wrong or maybe I'm supposed to be like this. Any help would be great.
