i have been having lots of odd problems since sept. started with bad stomach ache, then dizziness, then woke up one moring with numb nose and it proceeded around my eyey like a mask and became very painful. my balance was off, felt drunk and could not drive. clumsy, would sway to one side. doc did mri of brain to rule out MS. mri came back negative but then she noticed a nodule on my thyroid and did blood work first one came back a tiny little bit on the hyper for tsh. the second one (month later) came back normal.
I've had similar problems, not exactly the same, but some. All of my results were "normal." But come to find out that the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist has recently changed the ranges for normal. Thats something you might want to look into. My symptoms are shakiness in hands, dizzy, fatigue, weakness, inability to concentrate(including just watching TV), hot all the time, and so on. And they come and go
After 3 dr's visits I FINALLY got a blood test, and everything was "normal." I got my results mailed to me and I found out from my own research (on here and elsewhere) that my results were not indeed normal. Hope that helps Tlsims.
