I am new here and I would like to ask about your opinions. So I have the following symptoms: digestive issues, muscle twitching, low iron, hair loss, irregular period (my first one at age of 18), sleeping difficulties, fatigue, increase of appetite (but no weight gain), dizziness. I had digestive issues in my childhood (even as a baby) and I was also very underweight as a kid and even as a teen, even though I ate a lot. My sister has similar problems. Currently I am 20 years old.
My symptoms were very intense about one year ago, but even now they did not go away. I started visiting many gastroenterologists, because I thought my problem was connected with the GI system. I had diarrhea for weeks, I had pain in my in my gastrointestinal tract for months. I eliminated some types of food. The tests excluded celiac disease and crohn's disease. My digestive problems got better a bit, but all of my other symptoms did not go away.
But then I started to think that my GI problems were caused by something else. One of the gastroenterologists even recommended to do a test for thyroid - and I did but the results were somewhere on the border: TSH: 0,73, T3: 3,55, T4: 12,30. I also started to notice that when I eat fat food and sugary foods or when I am under stress that my symptoms get worse.
Thank you for answering.
