Hi All, to keep a short version, I haven’t been feeling well since June this year and I also had the same symptoms towards the end of 2012 followed by a Sinus Infection in Dec 2012. I’ve experienced palpitations for 4/5 years now on and off but these seem to have been a regular occurrence since June but along with palpitations I’ve experienced hot sweats, irregular heartbeat, heart block (been checked by a Cardio) extreme fatigue no matter how early I go to bed and I think a little thinning of my hair around my scalp. My Mother suffers from Hyperthyroidism and had a Hysterectomy at 35 as the docs couldn't get her hormone levels where they should have been. I have had numerous amounts of blood tests within this time but no concerns, TSH levels still come back within "normal" range but fluctuate. I experience nerve pain regularly, muscle pains in legs, tingling, pain in wrists and hands, my periods are irregular, every 35 days give or take a day and I could tick off most symptoms in Hyperthyroidism and also symptoms for Hypothyroidism and having recently had a Neck X Ray and neck CT for an enlarged Thyroid Gland, I was told I had a small colloid Cyst on the left lobe of my Thyroid but no action needed as yet (I’ve had a lot of radiation within the past 4 months) I was admitted to Hospital in September with abdominal/menstral pain which resulted in a Laparoscopic Appendectomy which showed Mesenteric Adentitis but no ruptured/inflammed appendix. I also had low Magnesium and Potassium levels. Since then I have been back and fourth to my GP trying to find an answer of feeling unwell. I have a feeling of someone pressing on my throat and also a feeling that I have mucus in my throat constantly, I have had numerous glands in my neck for a while and I experience tight neck muscles daily. I’m also concerned as I had more metabolism blood tests recently and my Calcium levels were elevated and I can relate to some Hyperparathyroidism issues. I am currently in Australia until end of Jan and luckily managed to request an Endocrinology appointment before I leave but I feel so rubbish that most days I cry, mainly out of frustration from feeling like this for such a long time and being told no Thyroid issues because my ranges are "normal" and getting nowhere. I don't feel my hormones have been the same since having my 2 children. I changed my diet 3 years ago and lost weight healthily but since then I can't seem to put weight on even though I have an appetite. I look in the mirror and feel like my face doesn't look like the old me, it feels puffy and looks tired and I have a constant cloudy head daily. I'm also currently waiting on Biopsy results from an abnormal smear which is my first abnormal smear and never missed an appointment.
Any opinions would be appreciated, do you think I'm on the right track with seeing an Endocrinologist? We all know our own bodies don't we!
