I think I have hypothyroidism, but my MD only checked the TSH level which was around 5, and just said "see you in 6 months." No free T3 or T4 or anything. I'm planning on having those checked out soon by someone else. I've been feeling dizzy since August, with constantly cold hands and feet, shortness of breath, etc..

I went to an ENT, they did an ENG test and found nothing wrong with my ears that would cause balance problems or anything. I don't think it's anxiety, as I've been seeing a psychologist once I started having these symptoms.

What really scares me is that when I'm walking around, my legs kind of feel.. I don't know how to describe it.. they feel like jello or something. Not really wobbly to the point where I fall over, but they just seem a tiny bit off-balance. I'm worried that I'll get into a public place and just fall over and not be able to get back up or something. Anyone else feel the same?

  • Also, I've gained a single pound from my usual weight, so my MD didn't think it was my thyroid. :[

  • I don't think it is your thyroid either.I think your immune system is stressed out. You have to detox before your level of toxicity kicks your liver.Did you read the post on the guy who passed out at the pet store?They could not find a thing with him.
