Talking Help!!!!

I have been going to doctors for a number of years and have so many things that I think are thyroid symptoms. I mention them all and STILL have drs say, "the numbers just don't show it." I am hoping that someone will recognize these symptoms and at least let me know if they sound like thyroid, or better yet, does anyone know a doctor in the Phx., AZ area that is responsive to treating the symptoms not just the test numbers? I would LOVE to hear from you if you know anyone.

Symptoms:
R**** weight gain...27 pounds in 5 months!!!!!!! (I am eating no different, counting calories, etc.)
Thinning eyebrows..sounds funny, about a third of them is gone!
Hair loss
In a fog...light headed often. Have to take iron to even function on days.
Anemic
Sleep very little
blurred vision; r****ly changing RX for eyes
Had gall bladder removed
Head aches; sinus
dry skin...improved, used to be awful excezma
carpal tunnel (or so the drs tell me...I say arm pain)
I always feel like I have to clear my throat

Lately the left side of my face tingles and feels almost numb and I get dizzy!

Doctors keep telling me that they can't figure out what is going on. Last dr. gave me medicine for dizziness...slept 15 hours! That won't be taken again.

ANY CLUES? ANYONE?

Re: Help!!!!

How about getting copies of the lab work your doctors have done. Since they say that your "numbers just don't show it", you need to check and see WHICH tests were done and WHERE your blood tested.

Post the results and the labs normal ranges here and someone can help you learn to read them.
