Re: Dizziness - Bed Spins - Dropping
If there is a familial trait for thyroid dysfunction you are of the age for it to develop. Have your OB or GP run the following tests. TSH, FT3, FT4, T3-Uptake, TPOAb, TGAb.
The virtigo and dizziness and weight gain and many other symptoms are liked to hypothyroidism. I have it as does my mom and all four of her sisters.. we have the bonus auto immune inspired hypo and hyper thyroid issues. I am doubtful this is a sleep disorder, given it is happening during the day.
Look up hypothyroidism, symptoms and diagnosis.. and get that blood work done. When you have your blood results which should only take 3-4 days request a personal copy. Post them and your symptoms on the Thyroid disorders board make sure to include the ranges of the particular lab listed with your results.
Sorry to here about the virtigo and dizziness.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
