Perhaps someone can here can help me out. I seem to be getting nowhere with the docs. Here are the facts....
Diagnosed with multinodular goiter in 2003, 11 nodules, largest being 2.5 cm. (it actually starts on one side of the neck, around the esophogus, to the the other side) Biopsy showed nothing.
T3-T4 are within normal limits
Arthritis blood work came back fine
I am tired, moody, anxious, slow skipping heart beat (especially at rest) general all over muscle pain, EVERY joint in my body hurts. I have been limping for over a month due to a very sore hip, but I never injured it. Woke up one day and it hurt. Even all the joints in my hands hurt. My face and eyes are always puffy, no matter how much sleep I get. I can't tolerate the cold. (I wear sweatshirts while everyone else wears t shirts)
My hands and feet go numb. I wake up feeling hung over once in a while, complete with hugging the porcelin god. I can't remember anything, affecting long and short memory. Can't concentrate. Completely overwhelmed.
I think that wraps it up. Oh - I'm 32, physicaly fit. I look young and healthy, so docs blow me off saying I'm "too young".
