Can anyone advise me on where to go next with all this as my GP doesn't really seem to know.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism around 6 years ago. My blood results always seem to come back in the "normal range" or "slightly out of range" for a number of things. Recently through a lot of pushing I've had some more tests which have revealed a Vitamin D deficiency, slightly high Testosterone level and a kidney cyst.
For the past 5 years since giving birth to my first child I've had mouth ulcers almost constantly, I have a lot of other vague symptoms that can't really be proven like exhaustion, aching, pain, always cold especially hands and feet etc. It only goes away when I'm pregnant.
Since having my second child I had shingles (for the second time - first time was as a teenager), then I lost weight quite suddenly around a year after giving birth. Shortly after my periods returned and my symptoms returned. I eat a LOT. I can't gain the weight back, the weight loss has slowed down but I'm basically on a diet designed to make me gain a kilo a week. My periods are causing me a lot of issues - mainly pain and very heavy. They're also becoming more frequent and a lot of my other symptoms such as the mouth ulcers seem to be linked in with the cycle.
In the past 5 years I've had a lot of blood tests, seen gastroenterology, had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy, seen a dental consultant and had an ultrasound of my kidneys, liver, stomach, and reproductive system. I have a referral to urology to check a cyst and a referral to rheumatology.
Is it all likely to be linked to my thyroid? Are there other conditions that are linked to hypothyroidism or is it something else entirely?
