Hi I'm 57 year old female and think have all of the symptoms of an underactive thyroid (self diagnosis according to online tests). Yet my bloods for Hypothyroid came back normal from the doctors although he did say that my liver enzymes were up a little and that there were higher than normal inflammatory markers in my blood tests, slight high blood pressure, but he said that will come down once I lose weight. The whole reason I went to see him was that I struggle with weight loss (hence thinking I was hypothyroid). I eat normally. I don't snack in between. I drink moderately. I do find exercise a struggle as every bone in my body aches and the osteoarthritis is creeping in everywhere making certain exercises painful. I have three autoimmune diseases Lichen sclerosis, psoriasis and Osteoarthritis. My Doctor says I'm a good candidate to see a rheumatologist. Not sure what rheumatologist can do, anyone been to one before?
