I'm new here and I feel very confused with what is happening to me. My doctor ran some tests and says all is fine. I had suggested that perhaps it was my thyroid. A friend of mine had suggested it because my symptoms sound like her mother's. Doctor says no but has offered anti depressants. My symptoms come and go. I will feel really bad for a few weeks and then I will be better.This has been going on for years as I remember being like this in my early twenties (now mid 30s)
My symptoms are:
cold hands and feet all year around,rarely warm up
feeling cold most of the time,but occasionally I get overheated without a reason
sometimes I start sweating loads again for no reason
feeling tired with no energy
my legs have patches that have completely lost hair, losing a lot of pubic hair too!
my heart races from time to time again for no reason (not anxious or anything)
mood swings, feel angry again for no reason or feeling low and depressed
ringing in my ears
pain in joints and muscles that come out of nowhere
memory problems or can't remember words, can't keep up in conversations,can't concentrate
tsh was 3.2 (0.35-5.5)
ft4 was 11.5 (8 to 22)
tpo was 85 (0-34)
vitamin d 36 (needs to be overy 25)
ferratin 9 (10-291)
folate 4.2( needs to be over 6)
I asked about ferratin being under and she said it was barely under but i could take a daily pill to increase it. Same for the folate.
I don't know what to do. Are my symptoms all due to depression and the ferritin and folate being a bit low? I've been feeling so unwell for so many years but it always comes and goes and only recently decided to go and have it checked out but I feel like it has all been dismissed...like it's in my head.
