It started when I was having extreme fatigue, literally sleeping 19 hours + a day and I had a sore throat and feeling generally bad. I noticed I had a craving for sweets and that was so extremely rare because I've said my whole life how I hated sweets. I have been losing weight for a year and a half, exercising 5-6x a week and I lost 80 pounds. I felt really good when doing this, but when I got sick, I lost all interest. Of course I started to eat a little bad, but I was still cooking at home and using all wheat products and not drinking too much soda. I weigh myself every day bc of weight loss and noticed something: I gained 15 pounds in 3-4 days
I thought, oh well maybe it is water weight, even though it felt different. I drank a ton of water to try to get it out but no luck.
Here are my other symptoms:
Throat weirdness (it doesn't hurt but I feel hoarse.. I don't know sometimes a weird cough comes out?)
I can't breath right, I shake almost when I breathe in
Neck pain (i feel like I want to crack my neck but it doesn't work)
Irregular menses ( very VERY heavy)
Recent High blood pressure( i've always had pretty good BP, usually 115-118/75) The other day at the doc it was 130/80 then they took it again 15 mins later and it was 130/90. Of course I was worked up the second time, but I felt normal the first time. Gonna get that done again.
My ear hurts really bad. Might just be random, though.
Constipation ( always have "rabbit" turds haha)
Feet and hands are always cold, and i noticed it because I used to HATE wearing socks and now I can't go without wearing them.
Pain on my sides (might be constipation)
I also had an unidentified mass on my spleen but may have been a lupul? i think is the word bowel. Not sure what that means.
Throat itch, i keep wanting to make a loogie motion to scratch it
Extreme itchyness/feeling like I'm getting stabbed.
Nauseous (right in my throat, almost like acid reflux but it feels...different..)
Sweet cravings (soooo bizarre for me...)
And as I mentioned the weight gain (15 pounds in 3-4 days)
I know I probably have more symptoms, they just come and go and these are the most prominent that I have been feeling. I know it is a lot and they are pretty vague but bare with me. I swear that I am not making any of this up. I just want help. Why would I make this up if it won't give me the right treatment? (I've had some bad docs)
These are my blood levels: TSH
on the first test was 4.59 TSH
(second time) = 3.0 t4 free
I have alkaline phos
of 42 which is "low" on a scale of 50-136 that my lab goes by
No one wants to treat me
I have my first endo appt about a month from now but I feel so terrible. my chest hurts really bad right now, I feel like I want to throw up every morning, I have no interest in ANYTHING anymore except sleeping.
