Need a Diagnosis- Feel like death....
This is my first post. Hopefully someone can offer some insight.
I am 38 yo F with a history of fibromyalgia, orthostatic hypotension and hypoglycemia. Last summer I got my first kidney stone. I was very ill and ended up having shock wave therapy to blast it up. Since then, I have had symptoms of GI upset (now constant nausea and diahrea), bone pain, join pain, shakes, thirst, urinary frequency. I have had 4 more kidney stones in the last month. I have been in the ER countless times in pain. I have had all kinds of bloodwork done - all my CBC came back normal and neg ANA titer. I am going to an endocrinologist this week to have them test my thryoid and parathyroid. I am constantly nauseous, always thirsty, always peeing!, and have a lot of muskuloskeletal pain. I am not diabetic and have ben tested several times - esp in the ER. I am beginning to suspect my parathyroid since it affects calcium regulation which would cause all of these symptoms. My urologist (who has been managing my stones) thinks nothing of it. (all the tests are normal, so I get treated like a crazy hypochondriac!)
Before my symptoms got bad, I did have the following tests done Jan 05:
T-4 Free 1.1 range .8-1.8
TSH .5 range .4-5.5
I realize my TSH suggests I am hyper, but it is stil considered "normal". In the last week I can barely eat, am so tired I can hardly get up, dizzy at times, and always thirsty. I do get hungry occassionally, but when I eat I feel sick again. My temp upon waking is 97.2 and gets as high in the eve of 99.6. I feel like I am plugged into an outlet, like my heart is on overdrive even though it is beating normally (I do have intermittent PVC's ). I need to save myself from this hell. Can anyone offer insight?
