Hey. I found this message board and I hope someone can help me. I am only 19, i feel 80, here is what I have been diagnosed with so far (from childhood up)
gerd,acid reflux,hiatal hernia,ibs(extremely bad constipation)
I have had my thyroid checked(only tsh), and of course, it all comes out as 'normal'. Once it was 1.1, then only 3 weeks later 2.3 My hair has been falling out at an alarming rate,my eyebrows are falling out, my hands are always freezing, I sleep practically all day and still feel awful. Now, I also seem to have 'swelling' around my mouth, and it's whiter around my mouth than the rest of my face. people tell me I always look tired or 'mad'. I have done a lot of research, and the only thing I can come up with is secondary hypothyroid, what tests need to be done to determine this? Also, is a naturopathic doctor better than an endo?I am seriously losing my mind, it is hard for me to be happy, I know you guys know what this feels like, and you've been there, so I really hope someone can help me here. I have a picture to show the swelling around my mouth and white color. Thank you..
