I am new here, this is my 1st post. I can't get a diagnosis, nor anyone to listen to me but suspect I have an auto immune condition . I just wondered if anyone could give me their opinion based on my symptoms and the few blood tests I have managed to have done? Tests :-
2/5/14 - 1.00 (range 0.20 - 6)
16 /5/14 - 1.9
10 /6/14 - 2.00
14/7/14 - 1.4
Vit D was 33
High ferritin with normal iron uptake which underneath was added "points to inflammation"
14/7/14 - 14
28/11/14 - 14.7 (range 10 - 20)
28/11/14 - 33.8 (range <60) I notice in other hospitals this is 34?
I have a multi nodular goitre as seen on a scan and 2 siblings with thyroid problems
Here are my symptoms:- Thinning hair, body hair loss, fatigue, muscle aches, joint pains, low basal temp (usually 35. something), flaking nails, dry skin, high cholesterol, high blood pressure (both recent), loss of libido, don't sleep well, cold hands/feet, get very hot then can't cool down.
I had 2 endo appointments with 2 drs, the 1st said I had CFS but ordered some tests, the 2nd (4 mths later) was with a different endo who said all my bloods were normal and discharged me. I asked about the goitre, he examined my neck and said my thyroid was swollen and yes, I did have a goitre but it wouldn't be affecting my health? Not 1 of those endocrinologists asked about my symptoms.
I am 57 and am through the menopause.
Any thoughts would be great.
