Low Ft4, normal TSH, feeling horrible
I've been posting on/reading the Thyroid board for a couple of months now, but my new tests and research have me wondering if my problems are coming from my pituitary.
I'm a 25 year old female. Some background, always never really felt well, always been overweight and had headaches (even when I was younger). I've never had as much energy as other people. I've been diagnosed with depression, and was on and SSRI, which didn't work. I've been on Welbutrin since about May, which also hasn't helped. Leads me to believe it's depression caused by another problem.
However, over the past few years, it's started to get worse. This last year has really kicked me in the butt. I feel horrible all the time, tired and out of it, aches and pains, headaches almost all the time, problems sleeping. My hair over the past four months has reduced dramatically. Mentally and emotionally I am just a mess.
In March of last year, I had a large heating lamp (like the kind they keep outside) fall on my head and had a concussion. The night it happened, I cried uncontrollably for 3 hours, which is really what made the doctor think it was an concussion. A CT was done and they didn't see anything, but I felt out of it for at least a month afterwards.
Could it be a pituitary issue? If so, how would I talk to a doctor about it? What could I get tested next?
I have other test results, as they did a CBC and some other tests in September and then again last week.
