Hi, I am just wondering if someone can help me.
Ive been told by dr back in December that thyroid tests were normal, didnt get the specifics as its like trying to get blood out of a stone, my personal info is apparently not availabe to me.
Various symptoms for 5 years, started after having my son, i feel i go between hyper and hypo symptoms but my antibody test a couple of years ago was negative.
My biggest irk is the pins and needles of my throat, face and back of neck, i get them elsewhere to but thats the ones that bother me. I have joint pains and my throat for last 6months to a year keeps getting so painful like something swollen up although it seems higher nr adams apple rather that nr collar bone, i then get sharp pain because its so swollen like a blade cutting into my throat either side. I also get dizzy, my vision feels like theres pressure, like if you push on your eyeball, floaters at times, feels like blood pressure is way high but mines actually low. My muscles feel to tight like thier seizing a bit. Lips tingle too. I get heart palps at times but also feel tired and sluggish and weight seems hard to shift even when i dont eat alot. I know heart palps is a hyper symptom but sluggishness is hypo. I dont struggle to sleep, im tired alot and sleep is easy, some nights i cant sleep but most im ok. Somedays i actually feel ok then as quick as a headache might come on my symptoms do, like someone flips a switch. This heat is making things worse for me i think too. I have very low blood pressure, like weirdly low but a very high heart rate, like 90-100 or above at rest. Neck & ear pain and fluid in ears at times. Not depressed but do feel like i have nervous energy alot.
My mum is hypo as well as B12 deficient amongst other autoimmune disorders.
Ive seem a rheumy who thinks i might have a connective tissue disease but bloods came back clean, i think the throat pain/lump is whats leading me to think thyroid.
Please can anyone tell me if any of this is familiar to them, im especially interested in facial pain/pins and needles in face as i cant find much info on these with thyroid. Diabetes was another thing i was looking into. Id also like to know if anyone feels ok then boom not ok or is it just constant all the time.
Im also interested in knowing about hypo/hyper symptoms at the same time.
Does anyone know a dr that will treat baed on symptoms and not just bloods.
Thanks in advance.
