I seem to have rather unusual symptoms for a person with Hashimotos and because of that doctors are always shoving me off to various specialists for them to figure it out, but haven't gotten anywhere. Hashimotos is still my oy diagnosis to date. Here are my various symptoms that have ebbed and flowed for the last two years since diagnosis.
Tingling in hands and forearms
Lack of appetite, especially in the morning
Afternoon crashes on T3 meds
Panic attacks before medicated
Depression when undermedicated
Choking sensation like lump in throat
Sore throat - especially at top
Irritated and light sensitive eyes
Swollen and itchy eyelids
Dark bruises on legs
Massive hair loss
Weight loss during times of stress
Unwanted hair growth on chin and upper lip
Occasional air hunger
Cold all the time
Nausea - especially during ovulation
At least 35 days between menstrual cycles and heavy flow for 3-4 days -- periods lasting 8-9 days sometimes.
Occasional chest pain
Almost constant sinus/nose pressure with no mucous -- just inflamed feeling
Occasional brain fog
For about a month I've had stomach pain in the middle of my gut that won't cease.
I just switched up medication ...I take 50 Synthroid at night before bed and 30 mg Armour in Am and 15 mg Armour in afternoon) Is it possible to have both hypothyroid symptoms yet feel over medicated?
Tried various vitamin routines but I'm not consistent. I don't want to really want to aimlessly supplement. I'm thinking about shelling out for Micronutrient testing. Also thinking about a GI map test, SIBO testing or a saliva cortisol test. I just don't know anymore.
