I have Ehlers Danlos 3 (connective tissue disorder) and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and other undiagnosed chronic illnesses. I also have family history of thyroid problems and I have been finding myself getting sicker recently and feel it may be thyroid. My symptoms are:
•sensitivity to light and sound
•dysfunctional uterine bleeding
•pelvic burning pain
•suspected ovarian cyst
•muscle aches and pains
•tingling in hands and feet
Are any of these distinctive to hypothyroidism and not other illnesses and are they all symptoms of an over active thyroid ?
I am getting blood tests on Monday but worrying nothing will show up. If it doesn’t should I request a TRH stimulation test?
Also, if I do have underactive thyroid and I require treatment, will this make my PoTs (tachycardia) worse?
