| | Can you relate? Any experts on results? What to do next?
I recently visited the doctor to have my thyroid tested as I have been feeling symptoms(thyroid inflammation, carpal tunnel like tingling in left hand/cramp in hands&feet, fatigue, tiredness, mood shifts, etc) for almost a year. When I went to the doctor they did the blood tests, to which they told me I am within normal ranges, and also ran an EKG/ECG to find that I have Bradycardia (45 bpm). Note that I am a 25 year old male in very good shape, in the past exercised 6 days a week, to now maybe half that due to lack of energy.
My biggest concern is my lack of energy in reference to my career and barely making it through the day. Lately I've needed a 2-3 hour nap every day even after sleeping 8-9 hours the night before. As a former college athlete I am all for pushing through the pain...but there is a point where you just have to admit that something just isn;t "normal".
Based of my results below and given that I've actually seen a doctor, is there any advice/input you could offer? Based off of what I've heard/read the results and symptoms seem to be indicative of Hashimoto's, do you agree?
