My doctor keeps telling me not to worry about my symptoms:
I've gained ~15 lbs in the past year despite eating about 1800 calories a day and exercising 6-7 times a week (185 lbs in 2013, 195 in 2015 and now between 210-215)
Thinning outer third of eye brow, hair shedding like a golden retriever
Scalloped tongue, especially in the morning
Cold hands and feet—hands also turn purple with orange spots
Libido is non-existent: used to be active and now have no desire whatsoever
Brain fog: used to be 4.0 student, when the symptoms started showing, I almost failed out of college (graduated with a 2.3 GPA). Can't remember the simplest of things. Can't compute mental math. And delayed, almost tunnel-vision.
Panic attacks: messed up my head pretty good by having one in a public place. Horribly embarrassing.
Joint pain: exercises are limited because of pain
Shortness of breath: my friends who drink and smoke daily can easily beat me in distance running. I have no stamina at all. 1/4 mile is about my limit before I feel like I'm going to implode
Depression: completely lost interest in all things. My friends go out to the bar and I'll stay at home by myself (half because I don't want to see people when I'm like this and half because I'm afraid of having another panic attack)
My doctor heard most of these complaints and gave me an inhaler for exercise-induced athsma. Said the other things were signs of aging and my thyroid tests were "perfect"
I'm starting to become hopeless because I can tell even my parents think I'm making it up. I attached my results. These tests were taken at around 12:30 EST (A little later than ideal). TSH value was 1.79 (ref: .4-4.0). Does anyone have any advice for what the next step could be?
