Re: Is this an autoimmunde disorder?? Please help!!

I don't blame you because an autoimmune disorder may be the culprit. I would ask for a sed rate, CRP, ANA (for lupus) and RF (for rheumatoid arthritis) and urinalysis (for sings of lupus) for starters. Also a thyroid panel with TSH, free T4&3, and thyroid antibodies. That should yield some clues to follow. If you research lupus and autoimmune hypothyroidism, you'll see some matching symptoms to yours. Recurrent mono (EBV) could be a possibility too and can be checked if the first batch yields no answers.
