I have burning palms and feet and recently got diagnosed with overactive thyroid, not specified yet as to whether or not it's linked to a specific autoimmune disorder.
In the past I was diagnosed with Raynaud's (I'm only 19 - and female). I thought maybe I was diabetic or had lupus?
My energy and appetite, as well as physical pain and weakness, fluctuate wildly. It's crazy, but sometime I display textbook hypOthyroidism symptoms, and sometimes the hypERthyroidism that I supposedly have manifests itself very clearly.
It's as though my body is at war.
I have heard of Hashimoto's and Graves'… could either of those cause such wild fluctuations in symptoms?
I'm going to an endocrinologist soon to get follow up/more detailed tests performed.
I'm just frustrated and even more stressed with this diagnosis.
I'm looking for anecdotal accounts, suggestions, support just for the time being to calm my racing mind.
