Hello, i was wondering if anyone could give me advice based on their own experience please. I visited the doctor in may and was told my thyroid is on its way to failing. The serum TSH level on my blood test in may showed 7.37 mu/L when the range should be (0.27 - 4.2). I have been told to wait until september to have another blood test as going on tablets too soon before its failed can cause heart disease. My mum has an underactive thyroid which was diagnosed in her fourties but i already am starting to have it at the age of 24. The skin on my hands have recently started to become dry in patches and peel off, same with my heels even though i am moisturising. I am feeling exhausted but then at night cannot switch off and get like restless leg syndrome. I have pain almost all the way down the right hand side of my body, recently its gone up to my neck. Since april 2015 i have had really bad wrist pain which throughout months has also gradually progressed to the arm, shoulder, upper leg, etc etc. I even get pain on the right side of my head. The doctor thinks its fibromylgia and that the thyroid not working properly has something to do with my nerves. Has anyone else had similar symptoms?
