Hi all I was hoping to get some friendly advice and support from this group as I am feeling a little lost and not sure who to turn to.
At the end of last year I started to notice how irrational I was becoming at "lady time" and it got worse each month. In May 2015 I started to fell unwell almost every day, constantly hungry no meter how much I ate, tired, moody, loss of libido, loss of interest in socialising, hair falling out and really struggling with my sleep also my tummy and bottom were very upset most days and my lady time became irregular. I went to my gp who decided to do full bloods and scans and the only thing that came back abnormal as my thyroid level and iron levels. I was told to be retested in 4 weeks time and to go at exactly same time but my gp wanted to test my TPO. When the second set of blood had come back my thyroid level was back to normal but my TPO was over 1300. My GP said he had never had a patient with these results so did a referral to an endocrinologist and a gastroenterologist. I had my gastro appt before my endorsed and after explaining everything she suggested I have an Iron infusion IV, an endoscopy and see a gynaecologist, I had my iron IV on Thursday this week and feel ok but not much different however I went to my endo appointment on Tuesday this week and didn't find the doctor very helpful, he basically said I have too many symptoms for it to be my thyroid and that high TPO with normal TFT could mean my antibodies are attacking something other than my thyroid but my GP said this all HAS to be thyroid related. I also asked my GP if I possibly had Hashitmotos disease and before I even finished the sentence he said no, my question after all this typing (sorry for the long post) is has anyone else been through this and can offer some advice, I am getting fed up of not feeling like me and not knowing why. Also the endo Doctor did me a new set of bloods for TFT and TPO and I am waiting for the results of these. Appreciate any comments or help from you guys.
