I'm 26 years old. I found out i have hypo last Aug. I had a tsh of >160, I was very sick, all the hypo syptoms and an enlarged heart to top it off, I was full of water head to toe i lost 70 lbs since i have been taking meds. In Nov. of last year i started to have joint pains, My knee's are the biggest problem, also my elbows, hands, feet and back. I also feel like crap. With all the pain i have been having i felt better when i was sick with hypo, now instead of sleeping all the time, i lay around in pain or am working in alot of pain. Sometimes my knee's or elbows snap and hurt very badly. It's very hard to handle each day, I'm going to have to stop working soon, I can't handle it anymore. I have been to a interenst, Who thought i might have gout, Or Lupus. But the blood test for lupus came back neg, and gout is kinda dumb considering my age and how long it's been going on+useually it's only on joint at a time. I was refered to a Orthapedic sergon, we did mri on left knee, he says torn medial menicus or what ever it's called. Told me i need to be more active
. Then i went to a dermatoligst she took a skin biospy from my back. I have a big red rash thats been there for around four years. I also went to a Rhematoligist she did more blood tests including an mri of my right knee-everything came back ok. So I'm sure i can throw the idea of a torn cart in my left knee out the window, cause i have the same pain in both knee's and right's mri came back fine. i have been pushing the idea of Lupus, and Lyme dieases with all the doctors, The only reason i think i might have lyme is cause i work 40+ hours outdoors in fields and the woods here in MI. The seem to say ok i'll test you for that and the blood tests come back neg. I know the test are not very good at telling us what is going on. Then i got refered to a gastrontoligist he's testing me for celiac dieases witch also makes alot of scince because i has most of the list of symptoms. It's been a very hard 7 months, If any one has any ideas or anything we might be over looking. Please let me know!!
